CAIRO -- At least 73 people were killed Wednesday in a rare outbreak of violence in an Egyptian port city, according to the Egyptian Health Ministry. It was one of the deadliest incidents in the country's recent history.
Clashes broke out as fans streamed into the stadium at Port Said at the conclusion of a game between regional teams, the hometown El Masry and al Ahly, according to news reports and witnesses.
The incident raised concerns about deteriorating security in the wake of Egypt’s revolution, which until last year was governed as a police state.
