Tahrir Square became a sea of red football strips as tens of thousands of fans from Cairo’s Al-Ahly football club staged a huge protest dubbed the “Friday of Anger” after 74 people were killed in Wednesday’s football riot.
Two people died in the Egyptian capital after suffering from tear gas inhalation as clashes between police and protesters raged on.
