Soccer violence broke out again in Egypt this week.  The cause was controversial judicial verdicts relating to the worst incident of sports violence in Egyptian history, which occurred last February in the city of Port Said.

Twenty-one people were sentenced to death for their role in the 2012 tragedy.  Rioting soon resulted after these verdicts were announced, claiming another 33 fatalities. Armed police, aided by tanks, were quickly deployed on the streets of Port Said to restore calm.
