Egyptian protesters streamed into Cairo's Tahrir Square on Sunday after a night of deadly clashes that signaled the start of a violent countdown to the first polls since Hosni Mubarak's ouster.

Dozens of protesters set up barricades on the edges of the plaza as marchers poured into the square, in scenes reminiscent of the 18 days of protests which toppled Mubarak in February.

Clashes overnight between protesters and police left seven people dead and hundreds injured, sparking fears of a disruption of Egypt's first elections since the end of Mubarak's 30-year-rule, scheduled to kick off on November 28.

The health ministry said 750 people were injured in the clashes in Tahrir Square, while demonstrations also spread to the cities of Alexandria, Aswan and Suez.
