    [h=1]Egypt: 'At least 73' killed in Egypt football violence[/h] [​IMG] There is bitter rivalry between the two teams
    Continue reading the main story [h=2]Egypt's Revolution[/h]


    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.
    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.
    Bitter rivalry Television pictures have shown images of crowds descending into the stadium, chasing rival fans and players.
    Some were cornered in the stadium, parts of which were set on fire.
    Egyptian fans are notoriously violent, says our correspondent, particularly supporters of al-Ahly known as the Ultras.
    They have been heavily implicated in the political confrontations recently, our correspondent adds.
    Wednesday's violence broke out at the end of the match, which, unusually, the Port Said side Masry won 3-1.
    As match ended, their fans flooded onto the pitch attacking Ahly players and fans.
    It is one of the worst football-related incidents in Egypt.
    All premier league matches have been cancelled and the newly-elected Egyptian parliament is to hold an emergency session on Thursday, state TV has announced.

    wapenzi wa timu ya Masry wamewashambulia wapenzi wa Ahly baada ya timu yao kushinda 3-1, polisi waliokuwepo uwanjani hawakutoa msaada wowote kwa walioshambuliwa, tukio hilo linahisiwa kuhusiana na siasa zinazoendelea huko.

    At least 73 people have died and hundreds more received injuries when riots broke out after an Egyptian Premier League match in the Port Said city in the north of the country.



    The clashes erupted on Wednesday immediately after the referee blew the final whistle, ending a game that saw the football team al-Ahly beat al-Masri 3-0 in the city.

    "The death toll, as a result of the unrest after the match between Al-Ahly and Al-Masri, has reached 73," Egypt's Deputy Health Minister Helmy al-Efni said.

    According to security officials, fans of the winning team flooded the field, and attacked the players and fans of their opponents. There are reports that rocks, bottles and fireworks were thrown onto the field.

    The two football teams have a long history of bad blood and many clashes have erupted between the two sides' fans in recent years.

    The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest political group, has denounced the clashes, accusing the supporters of ousted dictator Hosni Mubarak of sparking the deadly violence.

    "The events in Port Said are planned and are a message from the remnants of the former regime," said Egyptian legislator Essam al-Erian in a statement on the Islamic group's Freedom and Justice Party website.

    The regime of Mubarak toppled in February following weeks of anti-government protests in Egypt that put an end to his three-decade rule.

    According to the UK-based right group Amnesty International, nearly 850 protesters were killed during the historic revolution in the North African country.

    Ni noma huko Cairo mazee. Mpaka sasa hivi takriban watu 70 wanaripotiwa kufa kutokana na mapambano kati ya washabiki wa wa timu za El Ahly nadhani na Al Masry. Inasemekana siasa nayo imeingia kati.

    Kwa wasiofahamu Historia, Mechi yeyote iliokuwa ikichezwa Misri ilikuwa inahitaji ulinzi mahususi, tuliwahi kupata tabu miaka ya 70 na 80 kutokana na vurugu hizi. Sikumbuki vema nitawajuza ngoja nicheki vyanzo vyangu ila kuna timu iliwahi kupeleka wachezaji wake na Helikopta na kuwatoa kwa Helikopta walipomaliza mchezo.
