In Pictures: Flames after verdict

Ultras assembled at Al-Ahly Club following the Port Said case's verdict, with some setting flame to the Police Club and football association buildings



Ultras Ahlawy gathered at the team’s club in Gezira on Saturday morning following the verdict for the Port Said Football Stadium massacre case, in which 21 defendants were sentenced to death. Thousands of members of the group assembled in front of the gates of the club.

Some Ultras stormed the Police Club and the Egyptian Football Association’s (EFA) headquarters, located near the club, and set the buildings on fire.

The EFA announced that it is suspending football-related activities until further notice following the turmoil that left its offices in flames, reported state-owned Al-Ahram.

Hundreds of Ultras marched across 6th of October Bridge and back towards Al-Ahly Club through Qasr Al-Nile Bridge going into Saturday afternoon.

The military utilised its own helicopters in an effort to extinguish the fires on the Cairo island of Gezira.
