Report: Fans and Police Blamed for Egyptian Soccer Riot


Preliminary results of a parliamentary probe into the recent soccer riot in Port Said blamed fans and police for the 74 deaths and more than 1,000 people injured in the incident, according to a Monday morning report by Iran's Press TV.

The investigation partially supported the view of those who believed the riot was the outcome of a plot by those in power.
