Egypt's prosecutor general has referred 75 people to criminal court in connection with soccer riots last month that left over 70 people dead.
(AFP) Cairo - The defendants include nine members of the police and three officials from the Al-Masry soccer club. Two minors will be sent to a children's court, the prosecutor's office said in a statement.
On February 1, clashes in the northern city of Port Said between fans of home team Al-Masry and Cairo's Al-Ahly, erupted at the final whistle of the match.
Al-Masry fans invaded the pitch after their team beat the visitors 3-1, throwing rocks, bottles and fireworks at Al-Ahly supporters, causing chaos and panic as players and fans fled in all directions.
