Following several days of widespread violence, protests, and rioting in Egypt's major cities in which several dozen citizens were killed, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is facing tough challenges to his leadership.

The so-called "Soccer Riots" are a reflection of the grave mistrust that many Egyptians are feeling. Following the riots, Morsi declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew on three major cities. Residents of Ismailia – including military officers and soldiers— refused to heed the curfew and started a soccer game in front of the main government building as an act of rebellion.
