An Egyptian protester carries an injured boy away from clashes with Egyptian riot police during a protest following the announcement of the death penalty for 21 suspects in connection with a football stadium massacre last year, on January 26, in Cairo, Egypt. Protests have continued across Egypt after a verdict was announced in a case over the deaths of more than seventy fans of Egypt's Al-Ahly football club in a stadium massacre on February 1, 2012, in the northern city of Port Said, during a brawl that began minutes after the final whistle of a match between Al-Ahly and opposing side, Al-Masry. 21 fans of the opposing side, Al-Masry, were given the death penalty in the court case, a verdict that must now be approved by Egypt's Grand Mufti. The verdict was handed down during a period of high tension across Egypt, one day after the second anniversary of the beginning of Egypt's 2011 revolution that overthrew former President, Hosni Mubarak.
