Members of the Ultras Ahlawy – hardcore fans of Egyptian football club Ahly – blocked Cairo's 6 October Bridge on Wednesday afternoon, one of the capital's main traffic arteries.

Earlier in the day, hundreds of Ultras demonstrated at the Egyptian Stock Exchange in downtown Cairo before marching on the nearby Saad Zaghloul Metro Station where they stood on the rail tracks, briefly halting Metro services in the Cairo metropolitan area.

The Ultras' protests come as part of a "day of rage" organised by the hardcore Ahly fans to demand justice for the victims of last February's Port Said stadium disaster ahead of an anticipated 26 January court verdict.
