Man, WHAT is going ON with people these days?


At least 73 people have been killed in clashes after a football game in the northern Egyptian city of Port Said, medics say.

About 1,000 others were injured in Wednesday's violence, including police. At least two players suffered light injuries.

Fans of the winning al-Masry team flooded the field seconds after the match with al-Ahly, Egypt's top team, was over.

A security official said the fans chased the players and cornered their supporters on the field and around the stadium,
throwing stones and bottles at them.

Thousands of supporters covered the field, as seen in a video posted online.

I know people in Egypt aren't exactly happy here lately, but damn!

There is a video on the page, showing huge numbers of people scattering on the field. But 73 people dead and 1,000 injured? THAT is absolutely nuts.
