Ultras Strike Back

Aftermath of the Port Said Massacre: Ultras Strike Back from From Beyond The Margins.

On February 1, 2012, 74 people were killed and over 1,000 more injured in a stadium riot following a football match between rival clubs Al-Masry and Al-Ahly in Port Said, Egypt. Al-Ahly fans, also known as “Ultras,” directly blamed the Ministry of Interior for orchestrating the violence. Ensuing clashes in downtown Cairo between protesters and security forces lasted five days, leading to at least another dozen people killed in the aftermath.
