Protesters question timing of Egypt football violence


Witnesses and medical workers claim two people have been killed after police used live rounds on protesters in the city of Suez. According to reports, Egyptian demonstrators were attempting to break into a police station when they were shot at.

Clamour against the country’s military rulers rose on the streets of Alexandria, with protesters carrying mocked-up coffins representing those killed in Wednesday’s post-match violence in Port Said.

Adding to the already tense situation, there is now speculation about the timing of the deaths after Wednesday’s football match. They came just one day shy of the one year anniversary of the Battle of the Camel – the former president’s unsuccessful attempt to stop the uprising by sending men on camels and horses into Tahrir Square.
