At least 73 people have been killed in clashes between rival fans following a football match in the Egyptian city of Port Said, state television reports.
The deaths occurred as supporters invaded the pitch after a match between top-tier clubs Masry and al-Ahly on Wednesday. It is feared the death toll could rise as at least 156 people have been hurt. It is the biggest disaster in the country’s football history, said the Egyptian deputy health minister.
“This is unfortunate and deeply saddening,” Hesham Sheiha told state television.

This kind of disasters display that the fuse in Egypt being short. When I saw the TV-pictures, I was remind about Colosseum.
As long as you give people bread and circus, they will not revolt. Without the religion of football, there would have been riots in almost every city on the planet.
The Bible says there will be terrible times just before the Messiah return.
2 Timothy 3
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy.
That football fan kills 73 people because they lost a game 1-3, is a horrible example of this part of the Prophetic Word being fulfilled in our time.
