Egypt fans attack FA headquarters
Around 300 people have stormed the headquarters of Egypt's Football Association in Cairo to protest a decision to resume the country's league games next month before bringing perpetrators of a deadly stadium riot to justice.
Fawzi Ghan, who works at the association, says he saw diehard fans known as "Ultras" fire flares at the building, smash cars belonging to employees and steal an unknown number of trophies from glass display cases on the ground floor yesterday.
Several security officials are among those facing trial in connection to the 74 people killed in rioting after a local football match in the city of Port Said in February.
The federation shut down the league after the riot. Reversing that, officials have not decided whether fans will be allowed at coming matches.
IPC dismisses complaint about blades
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) says there is no evidence to back up a complaint made by South Africa that athletes are switching the size of their blades during the London Games.
South Africa's National Paralympic Committee requested that an urgent investigation be opened into the matter following comments made by Oscar Pistorius, who accused Alan Oliveira of Brazil of gaining an unfair advantage by running on lengthened blades in his win over the South African in the 200 metres on Sunday.
Craig Spence, the IPC's director of communications, says "we met with coaches of the relevant athletes" and "there was quite a look of shock on the coaches' faces when we put this to them".
Spence added yesterday there will be no further investigation because "at the moment, there is no evidence".
