Egypt Charges Muslim Brotherhood, Ultras Over Soccer Violence Deaths

Egypt's public prosecutor said on Tuesday that 16 people, including members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, were charged with killing and inciting violence in connection with the deaths of 19 soccer fans. Those fans clashed with security forces last month. The Brotherhood supporters and members of a fan group known as the Ultras were charged with carrying out the violence outside a stadium. According to prosecutors, those charged did so in order to create an image of instability before an investment summit that was held in Sharm El-Sheikh over the weekend.
