The Egyptian Interior Ministry announced that they are fully responsible for securing the domestic league, that will be resumed next Wednesday.

The majority of Egyptian clubs have refused a recent ambiguous letter, from the interior ministry, that asked them to take on the responsibilty of securing the matches.

According to the Egyptian Football Association's (EFA) official website, its media official, Azmy Mgahed, was quoted as saying, “Minister Mansour El-Essawi stressed in a meeting with all clubs’ representatives that police forces will be responsible for securing the matches”.

The Egyptian League is returning back to life after a prolonged pause since the beginning of 25 January Revolution, amid heavy security threats after the Zamalek fans’ invasion of Cairo stadium last week.

“The minister affirmed that the clubs must co-operate with the police to secure the games, promising to not let any new riots”, added Mgahed.
