CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian state television, citing prosecutors, says at least 14 people have been killed in a riot at a soccer match.
The riot happened Sunday night as a match took place between Egyptian Premier League clubs Zamalek and ENPPI at Air Defense Stadium just outside of Cairo.
Security officials said Zamalek fans tried to force their way into the match without tickets, sparking clashes.
Zamalek fans, known as “White Knights,” posted on their group’s official Facebook page that the violence began because authorities only opened one door to let them in.
Such riots have happened before. A 2012 match in Port Said saw 74 people killed in a riot.
