22 Dead In Egypt Cairo's Football Clashes

Tags: Egypt News Sports Football

Clashes between football fans and security forces in the Egyptian capital Cairo have left at least 22 people dead, prosecutors say.

Fans of the Zamalek football club tried to force their way into a match without tickets, sparking the clashes, officials said.

The violence broke out ahead of a premier league game against ENPPI.

In February 2012, more than 70 people were killed in post-match violence after a game in Port Said.

On Sunday, police used tear gas to disperse the fans at the Air Defense Stadium in Cairo, with at least 20 injured, witnesses said.

Hard-core Egyptian football fans are often deeply politicised, and played a role in the overthrow of former President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

Egypt has reduced public access to football matches following the violence in Port Said.

Many people believe police in Port Said stood by in revenge for the fans' role in anti-Mubarak unrest. Police deny the accusation.
