The violent madness that engulfs Egyptian and Algerian footballing relations exploded yet again, this time during Saturday's African Champions League match between Egpyt's Zamalek and Tunisia's Club Africain.

Couple of shots in there air should help. I know you might not think so but nobody wants to be the one to get shot! lol This is crazy though. Does anyone know if anyone was seriously hurt?

A couple of shots could have panicked the other people that werent on the pitch causing a stampede for the exit.

"Hundreds of fans stormed the Cairo Stadium pitch, some armed with knives, others with sticks, and started assaulting the referee, his assistants and some of the Tunisian players. No major injuries were reported though."
