Egypt has gone batshit again this time at the football, at least 73 dead so far.

At least 73 people have been killed in fan clashes following a football match in the Egyptian city of Port Said, state television reports.

The deaths occurred after supporters invaded the pitch following a match between top-tier clubs Masry and al-Ahly on Wednesday.

It is feared the death toll could rise as scores have been injured.

It is believed to be the biggest football-related violence in Egypt's history.

Some of the dead were security officers, the Associated Press quoted a morgue official as saying.

The BBC's Jon Leyne in Cairo says it appears fans had taken knives into the stadium.

Our correspondent says the lack of the usual level of security in the stadium might have contributed to the clashes.

Police in Egypt have been keeping a much lower profile since last year's popular protests that ousted President Hosni Mubarak from power

wow. From the camera of the game doesn't look like much is going terribly wrong on in the field, but something must go terribly wrong in the huge crowd of people that follows the visiting team out in the dark end of the stadium.

In this interview two Al-Masri players (including the captain) accuse the police/military of having orchestrated the "riot" to help keep them in power. It's long but worth reading for another side of the story which much of the Western media is missing depicting events as if it's just football hooliganism when it's political.

I would say the (western) media I have followed on the matter mention the political aspect quite a bit.

This article on the other hand, although perhaps with some truth in it, includes a fair amount of speculation. Moreover, the two players are bound to be subjective and their interpretation of the events isn't much more than just that.
