Protests by football fans in the Egyptian city of Port Said have turned deadly, after at least one person was killed in violent clashes with the police.
Thousands of fans of the al-Masry football club, which has been handed a two-year ban from taking part in the Egyptian football league for the behaviour of its fans during a violent riot last month, held a protest against the decision late on Friday and into Saturday.
A teenage boy was killed last night in the clashes with police, and dozens more were injured.
