Roddy's entry shows dramatic footage of the running battles that erupted on the streets of Cairo following the Port Said football violence. Most of those killed or injured were fans of the club Al-Ahly - known for their prominent role in the protests against Mubarak and the military council that succeeded him.
Tens of thousands hit the streets in anger across Egypt the following day. Roddy spent two days filming at the centre of the protests outside the Interior Ministry. He was injured several times as protesters hurled rocks, while security forces on the ground and in armored vans fired salvos of teargas canisters. More: rorypecktrust.org/roddy-hafiz
