CAIRO, EGYPT - FEBRUARY 5: On February 2, 2012 thousands of Ultras Ahlawy and Zamalek (hardcore soccer fans) marched to Ministry of Interior HQ in Cairo near Tahrir square, following the catastrophe that took place in Portsaid stadium a day earlier, where 73 were killed and hundreds injured.

According to all the Ultras from the incident whom I met, Central Security Forces didn't intervene in the match and withdrew right after clashes broke out, which shows the their implicitly in the catastrophe.

The Ultras marched to Interior Ministry along with thousands of revolutionaries to show their objection regarding Portsaid events. Riot police responded to the protests with teargas, rubber bullets, and birdshot pellets. The battle stayed for more than 4 days leaving 9 at least dead and more than 3000 injured in Cairo and Suez clashes.
