Fresh clashes in Egypt's volatile Port Said

Two army conscripts were killed and at least 400 people were injured in fresh clashes in the volatile city of Port Said, Egypt's state-run MENA news agency said Monday.

The violence is part of tensions caused by a court verdict sentencing 21 Port Said residents to death for their alleged role in a deadly soccer riot last year.

Soccer fans in the restive Egyptian city also clashed with security forces and torched a police station Saturday.
