On February 2 in Egypt, legions of angry soccer fans (called Ultras) took to the streets in a riot after a match between two Egyptian soccer teams, Masry from the city Port Said and Al-Ahly, from Cairo. With no police present, at least 74 people were killed in the violence after the game. Many Egyptians are blaming the police and military for not protecting the fans from the violence.
