An Egyptian court today sentenced 21 people to death after they were involved in a riot following a football match in which 74 people were killed.
The controversial verdict prompted further bloodshed, as 22 people were killed during reactionary riots outside the Mediterranean city of Port Said’s main jail today.
Angry relatives of those sentenced tried to storm the prison to free the defendants, shooting dead two police officers, according to reports.
Egyptian security officials said the military had been deployed to the city, where most of those sentenced are from, as police became embroiled in violent clashes with protestors.
