Wednesday, February 1, 2012
CAIRO (AP) -- A medic in a morgue in Port Said, Egypt, says 35 people have been killed in violence following a soccer match after fans flooded the field seconds after the match with a rival team was over.
Some of the dead in Wednesday's clashes were security officers, the official said.
A security official and another medic said fans of the home team, Al-Masry, swarmed the field after a rare 3-1 win against Al-Ahly, Egypt's top team.
They were speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
