Relatives of the Egyptian policemen who were killed in Port Said grieve during their military funeral in Cairo on Sunday.
January 27, 2013 At least three people are reported dead. The funerals were being held for 35 people killed Saturday in anti-government rioting. The violence erupted after an Egyptian court sentenced 21 people to death for their role in a deadly soccer riot last year.
Flares were thrown in the stadium during clashes that erupted after a football match between Egypt's Al-Ahly and Al-Masry teams in Port Said.
February 1, 2012 Stones and bottles flew, according to reports from the scene. Many victims may have suffocated. The reason why things got out of control aren't clear yet. Meanwhile, a fire broke out at another stadium after a match was canceled.
