    mad 40 killed ... Egypt soccer match

    Fair and balanced news report:

    40 killed in clashes after Egypt soccer match

    Published February 01, 2012

    | Associated Press

    CAIRO – At least 40 Egyptians were killed Wednesday in violence following a soccer match in Port Said, when fans flooded the field seconds after a match against a rival team was over, Egypt's Health ministry said.

    It was one of the worst incidents of sports violence in Egypt in decades.

    A security official and a medic said fans of the home team, Al-Masry, swarmed the field after a rare 3-1 win against Al-Ahly, Egypt's top team. They threw stones, fireworks, and bottles at the fans and injured some players.

    A medic at a morgue in Port Said, a city on the Mediterranean coast, said some of the dead were security officers. He was speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to reporters.

    The causes of the deaths were not immediately known.

    The ministry's statement about 40 dead was carried on state TV.

    The players were later taken to the locker room for protection, Sayed Hamdi, a player told state TV.

    Soon after the violence, a soccer game in the Cairo Stadium between the Al-Ismailiya and Zamalek teams was called off in mourning for the violence in Port Said.

    State TV showed video of sections of the Cairo stadium on fire. The announcer said angry fans of the Zamalek protested the cancellation and set some sections of the stadium on fire.
    This sport is crazy in some parts of the World.

    (could this get moved to the mainstream news also, sorry wrong section)

    The latest say at least 68 killed.

    Such a refined, civilized grade of people over there. Is there anything that doesn't get them juiced up to kill people?

    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    It's all political. Former ousted president Mubarak used soccer to boost his popularity.
