Scores killed in Egypt football match riot


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 game between top-tier clubs Masry and al-Ahly on Wednesday.

The BBC's Jon Leyne says a lack of the usual level of security in the stadium may have contributed to the clashes.
