Egypt football violence was planned, says former footballer

At least 74 people have been killed in clashes between rival fans following a football match in the Egyptian city of Port Said.

Scores were injured as fans - reportedly armed with knives - invaded the pitch after a match between top-tier clubs al-Masry and al-Ahly.

Officials fear the death toll could rise further.

Hani Seddik, a former al-Ahly player, told the BBC he thought the violence was planned.
