Al Arabiya reports:

At least 22 were killed when supporters of football club Zamalek clashed with Egyptian police in the capital Sunday evening before a Premier League match, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

A medical source at Cairo’s Ahli Bank Hospital, who initially put the death toll at 14, told Ahram Online that the victims “died of suffocation and stampede after being tear-gassed.”

Translation via Al Masri Al yom:

Camera of “Egyptian Today” (Al Masri Al yom”) monitored Sunday evening that ultras of Zamalek “white nights” who were sitting on the stairways turning their back to the stadium while chanting slogans “We will take justice for them or we will die as them”, “In heaven oh martyr”. This happened after their friends were killed in clashes that took place between them and security forces.
