Egyptian youths, police clash in fourth day of violence
CAIRO (REUTERS) - Police fired tear gas at dozens of stone-throwing protesters in Cairo in a fourth day of street clashes that have killed at least 41 people and compounded the political challenges facing President Mohamed Mursi.
In the worst violence, security sources said 32 people died in Port Said on Saturday when protests erupted following a court verdict sentencing 21 people, mostly from the city, to death for their role in a deadly stadium disaster last year.
Mr Mursi's opponents have also taken to the streets across Egypt since Thursday, accusing him and his Islamist allies of betraying the uprising that overthrew Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
"Till now, none of the revolution's goals have been realised," said Mr Mohamed Sami, a protester in Tahrir Square on Sunday. "Prices are going up. The blood of Egyptians is being spilt in the streets because of neglect and corruption and because the Muslim Brotherhood is ruling Egypt for their own interests."
