The security forces arrested four members of the group during the clashes which took place after Ahly football team was handed the African Super Cup.
 
The clashes erupted after a small number of fans inflitrated the pitch to celebrate with Ahly players their team's victory over Tunisia's Sfaxien team.
 
As the security forces attempted to regain control, the crowd launched fireworks and threw chairs at the security forces, who responded by using tear gas.
