Soccer fans rushed the field after the home team won an unexpected victory over Egypt's top club Wednesday, setting off clashes and a stampede that left at least 73 people dead and 1,000 injured in a Mediterranean port city, officials said. It was the worst incident of soccer violence in Egypt and the deadliest worldwide since 1996. One player said it was "like a war."
