Al-Ahly fans gathered at the club training ground to commemorate the death of the 74 people who died in the Port Said stadium disaster one year ago.

Fans were painting the faces of each of the fallen along the outer walls of the club. Hundreds flocked to the training stadium inside the club. The Ultras led the chants before the memorial began.

Egypt-actus's insight:

The families of the martyrs walked out on to the pitch and were greeted with chants from the Al-Ahly fans.

 

The name of each person who died was read out and the crowd replied with a chant say that the deceased is now in heaven.

After the names were read out there was a silence around the stadium as balloons bearing pictures of the dead were released as flares went off on the pitch in a formation depicting the number 74.

 

After the silence the crowd erupted with songs and drumming and flares went off all around the stand.

Egypte: Enquête sur les violences survenues après la révolution

Selon les chiffres du ministère de la Santé, les évaluations indépendantes menées par les ONG locales et une estimation réalisée par IRIN à partir des rapports des médias, les affrontements qui ont marqué le second anniversaire de la révolution égyptienne ont porté à au moins 1 085 le nombre de victimes égyptiennes depuis le début du soulèvement.

Le défenseur des droits de l'homme Mohamed Bahnasy a dit à IRIN que le nombre total de victimes pourrait être beaucoup plus élevé et a appelé à la tenue d'une enquête en bonne et due forme.

« Il faut de toute urgence mener une enquête sérieuse sur les violences qui ont accompagné et suivi la révolution », a dit M. Bahnasy. « Certaines personnes ont été tuées et enterrées sans qu'on ait pu les identifier et déterminer les raisons de leur décès. »

M. Bahnasy faisait partie d'une commission d'enquête créée par le gouvernement à la suite de la révolution afin de déterminer combien de personnes ont été tuées ou blessées au cours du soulèvement.

Selon lui, des manouvres de manipulation et de destruction de preuves - il accuse l'ancienne agence de sécurité d'État - ont soustrait les auteurs des violences de toute responsabilité et induit les enquêteurs en erreur quant au nombre réel de victimes de la révolution et aux personnes responsables de ces actes.

« Certaines personnes ont été tuées et enterrées sans qu'on ait pu les identifier et déterminer les raisons de leur décès. »

« D'autres personnes ont été tuées, mais elles ne sont pas considérées comme des victimes de la révolution », a-t-il ajouté, faisant référence aux personnes qui ont été blessées et emmenées à l'hôpital pour y recevoir des soins pendant la révolution et qui sont décédées après avoir quitté l'hôpital.

One dead, dozens hurt as police clash with Egypt protesters

One dead, dozens hurt as police clash with Egypt protesters | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

(Reuters, via Aswat Masriya) - At least one protester was shot dead and dozens wounded on Friday when riot police clashed with demonstrators demanding the overthrow of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi.

Youths threw petrol bombs and shot fireworks at the outer wall of Mursi's Cairo presidential compound as night fell. Police responded by firing water cannon and teargas leading to skirmishes in the surrounding streets.

Two witnesses said they had seen a protester shot dead in Cairo with live ammunition in front of them.

"It's verified. I am at the morgue. He was shot with two bullets, and that's the report of the hospital. The shots were in the neck and the right side of the chest," said one of the witnesses, lawyer Ragia Omran. Medical and security sources confirmed Mohamed Hussein Qurany, 23, was killed with live bullets.

The head of Egypt's ambulance service said at least 54 people had been wounded across the country, mostly in Cairo.

The renewed violence brought an end to a few days of calm after the deadliest week of Mursi's seven months in power. (...)


UNGOVERNABLE

The rise of an elected Islamist after nearly 60 years of rule by secular military men in the most populous Arab state is the most important change achieved by two years of Arab revolts.

But seven months since his narrow election victory over an ex-Air Force commander, Mursi has failed to unite Egyptians and protests have made the country seem all but ungovernable. The turmoil has worsened an economic crisis, forcing Cairo to drain its currency reserves to prop up its pound.

Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie, on his Facebook page, blamed the unrest on "regional and international forces which aim for instability and to stir up problems and ignite strife to damage Egypt ... to thwart the democratic transition".

Brotherhood followers have clashed with demonstrators in the past, especially at the presidential palace which they regard as a symbol of his legitimacy. But the group has kept its men off the streets during the latest violence.

It is far from clear that opposition politicians could call off the street demonstrations, even if they wanted to.

"You have groups who clearly just want a confrontation with the state - straightforward anarchy; you've got people who supported the original ideals of the revolution and feel those ideals have been betrayed," said a diplomat. "And then you have elements of the old regime who have it in their interests to foster insecurity and instability. It is an unhealthy alliance."

Many Egyptians are fed up.

"We are exhausted. This protests thing is a political game whose price the people are paying. I hate them all - liberals and Brotherhood," said Abdel Halim Adel, 60, near the presidential palace.
