Protests continue in Egypt after deadly soccer riot

Thousands gathered around Tahrir Square in Cairo Friday morning as protests against authorities continued following a deadly soccer riot that killed dozens.

Days after the soccer match melee that left 79 dead, Egyptians decried what they called inadequate security.

Some protesters massed near the Interior Ministry and yelled for the end of military rule in country, a chant that was met by blasts of tear gas from police.

Clashes Friday left two dead in Suez and a military officer dead in Cairo, said Adel al Adawi, a Health Ministry spokesman.

    Inadequate security?
    How about the spectators take some personal responsibility and quit freaking fighting over a GAME?
