Riots at Egyptian football match

When they aren't forcing slaves to build pyramids, the Egyptian government are annoying their loyal subjects to the point of riots, then not policing them properly.  I can only imagine the anger inside any of you who actually know stuff about Egypt and politics after reading that sentence.

So far about 74 people have been confirmed dead in the riots, which started during a match between two top flight Egyptian teams.  This is a terrible and tragic story, and yet another reason to add to my list of why I shouldn't go to Egypt on holiday this year.  I'll probably just go somewhere nice instead like France.  You've lost my custom!
