Ahly hardcore fans (Ultras Ahlawy) clashed with security forces Monday night after they attempted to stop TV personality Khaled Ghandour from entering the Dream TV Channel studio.

Ghandour, a former Zamalek player and sport TV anchor, earned the Ultra's wrath after leading a demonstration on Sunday to push for the return of football activities after a nine-month suspension.

The clashes left four officers, thirteen Ahly fans and a paramedic injured. Four police cars were also damaged during the clashes.

Security forces cordoned off the building to stop the Ultras from entering.

All football competitions have been suspended in Egypt since 1 February when 72 Ahly supporters died, allegedly after rival Masry supporters invaded the pitch and attacked their opposition at the Port Said stadium.

The league was due to start this month but the security authorities postponed it after Ahly’s hardcore fans, Ultras Ahlawy, vowed to storm any match that took place before verdicts were reached in the trials of defendants accused of playing a role in the Port Said tragedy.
