Violent protests continued across Egypt two days after the second anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution that overthrew former President Hosni Mubarak on January 25, and one day after the announcement of the death penalty for 21 suspects in connection with a football stadium massacre one year before. The verdict was announced in a case over the deaths of more than seventy fans of Egypt's Al-Ahly football club in a stadium massacre on February 1, 2012, in the northern city of Port Said, during a brawl that began minutes after the final whistle of a match between Al-Ahly and opposing side, Al-Masry. 21 fans of the opposing side, Al-Masry, were given the death penalty, a verdict that must now be approved by Egypt's Grand Mufti.
