CNN reports that an Egyptian court sentenced 11 men to death on Tuesday for their involvement in the worst soccer violence in Egypt’s history. Over 70 people, some of which were children died on February 1, 2012, when fans rioted at a soccer game in the northeastern city of Port Said.
The 11 sentenced to death in a retrial of the case were connected to the Al-Masry club and they will be able to appeal their sentences, according to the state media. Forty other people received prison sentences in the case.
