Egyptian Soccer Verdict Rampage Kills 30

Still reeling from yesterday’s deadly two-year anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s vicious cycle of violence continues. At least 30 people were killed and estimates of 200 wounded during a deadly riot that exploded in Port Said Saturday, after a court verdict sentencing 21 people to death. The prosecution is linked to the case of a 2012 Port Said soccer riot that killed 74 fans of the opposing, Cairo-based team. Military forces were dispatched to the area, where angry relatives of the defendants had stormed the prison, shooting two police officers in the process. Six rioters were also killed when police fired rubber bullets and tear gas into the crowd.
