Egyptian Soccer Fans Stone Dozens Of Opposing Team Fans

Democracy in Egypt.

And you thought American sports riots were bad?

From Al Jazeera:

At least 70 people have been killed in clashes after a football game in the Egyptian city of Port Said.

Scores of others were injured in Wednesday's violence, including security personnel. At least two players suffered light injuries.

Fans of the winning al-Masry team flooded the field seconds after the match with al-Ahly, Egypt's top team, was over.

A security official said the fans chased the players and cornered their supporters on the field and around the stadium, throwing stones and bottles at them.
