  4. Egypt: ‘At least 73’ killed in Egypt football violence

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