Egypt soccer tragedy ruling prompts unrest on both sides
Al Jazeera: An Egyptian court has upheld death sentences handed to 21 soccer fans for their role in a stadium riot in which more than 70 people were killed last year.
The judge also acquitted seven of the nine police officers previously convicted over the disaster, which happened in the Suez city of Port Said at the end of a match between Cairo team Al-Ahly and local side Al-Masry.
The verdict has prompted anger on both sides. Al-Ahly fans, whose number made up most of the dead, were angered at the the decision to acquit the police officers. They stormed the HQ of the Egypt soccer federation in Cairo, setting it alight. In Port Said, several hundred people, many of them relatives of the defendants, gathered outside the local government offices to vent their anger over the verdicts.
