Egypt Soccer Riots

On Wednesday February 1, Post Said's Al-Masry team beat Cairo's Al-Ahly team 3-1. Fans rushed the field after the home team defeated Egypt's top club team unexpectedly. After the game, fighting ruptured in the stadium which is located in the northeastern city of Port Said. Fans from both teams hit each other with rocks and chairs. Dozens of ambulances came to the scene and rescuers treated people on the ground. The military in Egypt deployed two planes to transport the Al-Ahy team, some of the fans, and some people who were injured.

So far, 73 people have been killed in this horrific riot. At least 1,000 people have been injured, and 150 of these people are critically injured. A health ministry official said most of the deaths were caused by concussions, deep cuts to the head, and suffocation from the stampede.

As authorities were responding to the fighting in Port Said, a fire broke out inside Cairo stadium after a soccer game between Al-Ismaili and Zamalek was called off due to the violence in Port Said. No one was injured at the Cairo stadium.
