Prosecutors investigate football fan riots



The Agouza prosecution in north Giza inspected, on Wednesday morning, the scene of riots that occurred Tuesday evening between the Ultras White Knights and the Ultras Ahlawy outside the Zamalek Club in the Meit Oqba area.
 
A number of private cars, as well as a motorcycle, were set on fire and eight rioters were arrested.
 
The Ultras White Knights blocked the road outside the Zamalek Club to protest the loss of the Zamalek football team in a 0-2 match against the Al-Ahly Club team. Fighting broke out between the two groups of fans as they watched the match from cafes near the club headquarters.
