Crowds of friends and families gathered outside Cairo’s main station to greet wounded Al Ahli supporters who had managed to get home after the violence in Port Said.
There were also supporters waiting by the stadium of the club who were especially angry. They claimed televised footage of the trouble showed the presence of riot police apparently doing nothing.
Questions are being asked just how a football match could trigger such violence.There is speculation that like the clashes in Tahrir Square two days ago, pro-revolution groups and more conservative elements remain at logger heads.
And its being aggravated by a marked security vacuum in post-Mubarak Egypt.
