CAIRO - Egyptian police fired tear gas and shot bullets in the air in the coastal city of Port Said as scuffles renewed between soccer fans and security forces after their club was banned over the country's worst stadium disaster, witnesses said.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) banned the club, al-Masry, for two seasons for a pitch invasion that killed 74 fans last month. One person was shot dead when angry fans clashed with security forces on Friday night.
