An Egyptian court on Monday, February 20, 2017, sentenced 10 men convicted over rioting that claimed 70 lives at a stadium in Port Said in 2012. According to Aljazeera, the riot broke out when fans of home team Al-Masry and Cairo’s Al-Ahly clashed after a premier league match between the two clubs. The Cairo fans unfurled banners insulting the local team, which had won the match 3-1.
