Seventy-four were killed and over 1,000 injured. Many died after being trampled under the stampeding crowds or falling from stadium balconies, according to forensic testimony later reported in the state news media.
It was the worst soccer riot in Egyptian history and among the worst in the world. Many political figures, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood, initially sought to blame a conspiracy orchestrated by Mubarak loyalists or the Interior Ministry. Some even blamed lax oversight by the military council that ruled Egypt at the time. But prosecutors ultimately charged 21 Port Said fans with attacking their Cairo rivals and charged nine security officers with negligence. Six of the convicted fans remain fugitives.
