Egypt’s general prosecutor charged 75 people Thursday in connection with a deadly riot at a soccer stadium last month that left 73 fans dead.
The violence broke out during a football match between Al-Masry and Al-Ahly clubs in Port Said on February 1.
Those suspected of assaulting the visiting Al-Ahly fans were charged with “premeditated murder and attempted murder,” according to a statement released by the prosecutor’s office.
