The remaining defendants on trial for the Port Said football stadium riot that occurred on February 1, 2012, are sentenced.

During a rampage of soccer fans that day, after a match between Cairo's Al Ahly and local team al-Masri, some 74 people died and 300 were wounded - many of them fans of the visiting team.

Previously the Egyptian court sentenced 21 out of the 73 men on trial to death for their role in the violence.
