Egypt's interior minister to be questioned over riot deaths
News Date: 11th March 2013


Egypt's interior minister and senior policemen will be investigated over recent deadly rioting in the restive city of Port Said, reported the state-run newspaper al-Ahram online Sunday.

Judge Abdel Aziz Shaheen ordered Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim be questioned next week over the unrest that erupted in January following the sentencing of 21 local people to death, according to the report.

More than 40 people were killed in ensuing clashes between protesters and security forces, according to government figures.

The chief of the city's security and heads of three prisons will also be quizzed.

Port Said has been in turmoil since the verdicts, which were related to deadly football mayhem that broke out more than a year ago.

On Friday, the army took over from police in guarding the Suez Canal city's security headquarters and key state institutions.
