Riots in Port Said

Violent clashes are continuing in the city of Port Said. Last year, a football riot occurred there and left 74 people dead. Trials of some of the people who took part in the riots are still ongoing and so far 21 people have been sentenced to death. Now what some locals see as a heavy-handed police crackdown is adding to the city’s tensions.
