Algerian football fans continue their rampage in Algeria....

Is this going to go world-wide???
Egyptian businesses have been attacked in the Algerian capital, Algiers, during a rally in support of the Algerian football team.

Thousands of people gathered in the city centre, hoping to buy plane tickets to Sudan for a World Cup qualification play-off against Egypt.

Fans broke into the offices of Egypt Air and an Egyptian phone company.

Wednesday's play-off is required after Saturday's final group qualifier left the teams level on points.

The demonstration had began peacefully with a procession and shouts of "One, two, three, Go Algeria!"

Later a group of supporters broke through the metal shutters of an Egypt Air branch, smashed the window and ransacked the office.

The offices of telephone company Djeezy were also broken into and there were reports of a Djeezy employee being assaulted at Algiers airport.

On Thursday, four members of the Algerian football squad were injured when their team bus was attacked with stones as it arrived in Cairo for the first leg match.

Following the game, around 20 Algerians were injured in clashes in and around Cairo.
The article doesn't mention the riots in Marseille...
