World Bulletin / News Desk

The death toll rose to 32 in protests in the Egyptian city of Port Said against an Egyptian court's verdict which gave death sentences to 21 people.

The court held the 21 people responsible for the death of 74 individuals at the Port Said Stadium during a football game last February.

Protests against the Egyptian court began in Port Said right after the verdict was announced.

While 32 people, including 2 police officers, were killed on Saturday, at least 322 people were reported to have been injured in the protests.
