Dear Friends,

As you will be aware, over 70 Al Ahly football fans were killed last night following the match against El Masry in Port Said.

Many of the Al Ahly supporters are blaming the SCAF and police for the deaths.

Whether or not this is true, the situation is very tense and road blocks are being set up in central Cairo where many fans have gathered to protest.

It is not clear whether we will be able to have a service tomorrow (Friday) morning.  At present the service is going ahead as scheduled but if there is trouble overnight, please call to check that the service is taking place before setting out.

Call me, Iain, on 0106 450 7377
or Erin on 0100 203 5745

Please pray for the families and friends of those who have died or been injured, and for the continuing uncertain situation in Egypt.
.
Thanks,

Iain
