Witnesses say that the protester was killed when an army vehicle ran over him early Saturday.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Thousands more demonstrators are gathered in the capital’s Tahrir Square. Officials say more than 40 people have been killed across the country in eight days of protests demanding the end of military rule.

The military’s choice of Kamal el-Ganzouri, who served as prime minister between 1996 and 1999 under deposed President Hosni Mubarak, has deepened the anger of the protesters.
