In Pictures: Ultras White Knights members dispersed after interior ministry bars fans from match

Ministry of Interior barred audience from match “to ensure the safety and protection of the masses”



The Ministry of Interior announced Saturday that fans would not be allowed to enter a match against an Angolan side after Al-Ahly’s CAF Super Cup title game ended in running battles between fans and Central Security Forces (CSF) which resulted in 24 injuries.

The ministry’s statement read that the move was made “to ensure the safety and protection of the masses [from] elements trying to fabricate events that lead to security implications” in reference to “unfortunate events” witnessed after Thursday’s Ahly match.

Buses of Ultras White Knights (UWK) members were stopped from entering Cairo and members who tried to march to the game were dispersed by security forces which lead to the wounding of a UWK member.

The ultras released a statement via Facebook Sunday in response to the events, claiming that the members that had gathered before the match were dispersed when the interior ministry “reared its ugly head” and used tear gas, live ammunition, and birdshot to control the crowd.

“[The interior ministry] wants to turn the page on the past and open a blank page, [but] we find that page also stained with the blood of the martyrs and dozens of prisoners and the tears of mothers” the statement read, claiming that “justice, dignity and human rights” have been ignored by the ministry.

    It is amazing pix of young, misguided students. Univerisiies higher council should PAN any political or religious activities at the compass. Students are their to learn a skill or profession. All other activities contributed to their present state of ignorance.

    The student (man or woman) picture wearing a complete cover-up is a symbol of how low socially we became? How can a prisoner of old ideas (non-Islamic) ask for freedom? Egyptian society is now rotten to the core and blindly living in Dark Age.

    Population Explosion is the reason for all our problems.
