Egyptian security officials say at least 25 protesters and 10 policemen have died in this week's anti-government protests.
They say the death toll was likely to significantly rise as more reports come in from hospitals and morgues around the country. They also say that at least 750 policemen and 1,500 protesters have been wounded in clashes.
The officials were speaking Saturday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to share the information with the media.
The protests are the most serious challenge to President Hosni Mubarak's 30-year authoritarian rule. Mubarak, in an attempt to contain the unrest, said on Friday he was firing his Cabinet and sent army troops out to the streets to restore order, but protests and a wave of looting are continuing.
