CAIRO - Angry Egyptian soccer fans protested at the general prosecutor's office on Wednesday in Cairo, demanding that authorities bring to court those responsible for soccer violence that left 74 people dead.

Fans and activists said they would take matters into their own hands unless justice was done, putting more pressure on ruling generals already facing public criticism for mismanaging the transition to democracy in the wake of the uprising that began a year ago.

"With our souls and blood, we will protect you martyrs," chanted a crowd of several thousand. "Down, down military rule."

Violence broke out on Feb. 2 at the end of a match between the al-Masry team in the coastal city of Port Said and Cairo's visiting Al Ahly team, the most successful in Africa.
