Violence flares over Egypt football riot sentences

Rival football fans in Egypt have been protesting angrily over sentences handed down over deadly riots at a match in Port Said in February 2012.

The court upheld 21 death sentences and handed down prison terms to other defendants over the violence, which claimed 74 lives.

The BBC's Aleem Maqbool has been watching events in Port Said, while Magda Boutros from the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights has more details of protests in Cairo.
