Fresh clashes have taken place between military junta police and football fans in the northern Egyptian city of Port Said, after their club, al-Masry, was banned for two seasons following the country's worst-ever stadium violence last month.
The clashes began late on Friday night and continued into Saturday night, claiming at least one protester's life and leaving more than 100 others injured.
Stone-throwing protesters clashed with police on Saturday evening near the Suez Canal Authority building, the site of the previous day's violence. Police responded by firing into the air to disperse the crowd, junta security officials said. Tear gas was also fired.
The city's harbor was closed on Saturday due to the protests, and ships using the Suez Canal were redirected to a secondary route, located east of the city, the Reuters news agency reported.
Eyewitnesses said that many factories were also closed on Saturday, as hundreds of protesters had blocked roads leading in to the coastal Mediterranean city.
