Clashes have broken out in the Egyptian city of Port Said after its football club was suspended over match violence that killed at least 74 in February.

One protester was shot dead and several injured as hundreds of angry fans battled security forces.

The two-year ban was imposed on the club, one of Egypt's top teams, because of the violence at its stadium during a game in February.

A criminal investigation into the incident is continuing.
