PA Speaker Calls for Emergency Meeting to Respond to Port said Massacre
PA Speaker, Dr. Saad Katatni called for an emergency meeting Thursday at 11:00AM to discuss the horrific events in Portsaid, where clashes broke out following football game between Al-Masry and Cairo side Al-Ahly teams.
For his part, chairman of the Youth Committee Dr. Osama Yasin asserted that the assembly would discuss both these events, and others where attempts have been made to incite chaos and destroy the revolution’s accomplishments.
Yassin offered his condolences to the families of the victims killed during the clashes, stressing that the recent violence including the armed robberies on banks and hospitals and today’s chaos in Port Said did not go on during the trying days of the revolution even with the absence of the police forces, accusing old regime figures of orchestrating them.
