Video: Algeria national team bus attacked with rocks by Egypt fans

Crunch match gets crunchier

Algeria’s World Cup qualifier against Egypt on Saturday will have extra bite (as if it needed it) after their team bus was attacked by Egyptian fans. The coach had not even left the airport when rocks were thrown threw the windows, injuring three players.

Rafik Saifi, who was hit on his hand, and Rafik Halliche and Khaled Lemmouchia both suffered head injuries. You can see photos of the injured players after the jump.

VfL Bochum player Antar Yahia described the situation. He said: “They struck our bus with large bricks. Players have open head wounds with blood. We were lying down in the bus. All the windows were broken. It makes you fear for your life. As long as our lives are not assured we’re afraid to play this match.”

“They [the security guards] let them do it. You can’t launch five kilo rocks from 50 metres. They let them do it and watched. It’s shameful. In our home game we welcomed them with flowers,

    Egypt should be thrown out of the world cup, as an example to others. This sort of behaveour has no place in sport. Shame on you egypt!

  • Mike

    How on earth this can be an attack on the bus?

    Can not you see that the whoever inside the bus are breaking the windows

    I think is a bad play from the Algerians

  • tsuki

    egyptian used to do this ,but never been punished from fifa befor,anyway a french reporter from ” canal+” i think was into the bus and many videos were taken .

  • Toumi

    Mike!!

    Are you some-kind of a retard or are just plain stupid to wonder about what’s clear to everyone else?

    Next time you want to be taken seriously, at least have the courage to write under your own Egyptian name; yes you read it right, I said courage, something you lot are not familiar with.

    Algeria is going to win!!

    All the videos, posted online, do not show ANY stone, or brick throwing on the bus.. if there is.. show me.. im serious.. all the videos are just, taken form the bus, but nothing is showing.. no proof that egyptians DID throw bricks and stones on them. I have seen it all on t.v. when it happened… i saw videos of the algerian players breaking the windows with the hammers, put under the chair incase of emergencies.. and i have seen the bus after they broke it, and i have seen the egyptian driver who was driving.

    first, i am not saying this to make anyone look bad, im just saying the truth, and this is what happened.

    Egyptian people were on the streets, with the egyptian flags, and wanted to annoy the algerian players, by Cheering for egypt, with the egyotian flag.. which is pretty normal. Then, the players got mad, and started cussing at them.. but since there were windows the people could not hear them. the windowns of the bus do not open, and for that they put hammers, under each seat, incase of emergencies to break the windows and get out and all.

    so the players got that and started breaking the windows, and cussing at the people for cheering for egypt (which is pretty weird that they expected egyptian people to cheer for algeria).

    & while they were breaking the glass, the driver tried to stop them, telling them to stop and all.. and they started hitting him (i have seen the dirver, his shirt was ripped, and he was really hurt) & told him not to stop the bus, and keep driving.. when the reached they complained and said that the egyptian fans started throwing rocks at the bus.

    Also, an algerian player, was captured, by the hotel camera on tape.. going in his room, normally, and then.. 30 minutes later him coming out of the room with blood on him. and then he claimed that that was hurt because of the “stone-throwing”.

    Other than all that, egyptian police, stated that the windows were broken from the inside and not from the outside.

    Lets also say, that, that has happened, that the egyptian fans did throw bricks and stones and rocks on them, wouldn’t there by bumps on the bus too? or will only the windows be broken and every other parts of the bus perfectly fine.. i mean, are you seriously saying that, ALL the people that were throwing, aimed perfectly on the windows? AND while the bus was moving?

    i am not saying this, based on stories i have heard, im basing what i have said, on what i saw, i have seen videos of all of this, and if i can get them, i will upload them on youtube.

    In the end, i said this, just to let people knwo, egyptians arent that bad.. i am not egyptian incase your wondering, so im not defending egypt, cause im egyptian, incase you were thinking that, im saying the truth.
    & in the end, a soccer match, should not make so much hatred between people, especially that we are all arabs.. I said this cause this had to be said, because egyptians, did not do it.

  • yanis

    If players did it by them self why they have to recored this ,and bitch a journaliste from canal + was a witness ,he was in side the bus…,you fucking retard to think that…. you saw video of you mom getting ripped bitch,and who told you we are all arabs, algerians aren’t same race as your fucking retard race , long life to algeria and IMAZIGHRENESSSSSSSSSSSSS………

  • Sara

    Yeah, the Algerians sabotage the bus, and blame egypt. Typical!!! Read the latest news and you’ll see which team was the one that attacked the bus (aka, the algerians destroyed it themselves! If it was Egypt that did it, FIFA would’ve fined us by now, but they know the truth :)

    EGYPT TO 2010 INSHALLAH! 😀

  • Sara

    All the algerians did with this little plan was ruin the arab relationship. Egyptians don’t forget hatred either, mimo. All I can say is, the match will prove it tomorrow, and math or no match, we’re still all arab. In other words, don’t attack each other, obviously we all love our countries, but we can love them without hating others. This is just getting WAY TOO Much now.

  • yanis

    another bitch talking,what the fuck are you talking about , fucking assholes,your beating you hosts,and blame it on the algerians fans ,algerian beating algerians,what the fuck, do you know about what hapenning all what you know is to fuck bitchs,you fucking bitch are arab,why do you saying we all still arab,suck my dick hocker im algerian and im not from your fucking arbian race,im an amazigh forzaaaaaaaaaa algeriaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa and kabyliaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • yanis

  • omar

    all of you are seriously fucked in the head… you all just keep on embaracing yourselves with your weak arrogant arguments grow the fuck up

  • omar

    YANIS go get a life and stop trying to prove yourself by isulting… although your ignorrance is kind of funny but It also makes me feel kind of sorry for you so make yourself a favor and stop writing your stupid shit otherwise not only do you look bad.. your country does too

  • omar

    oh and for the sister mother thing both egypt and algeria were owened by the ottomans so somewhere along your family line someone was a bastard hahah KNOW YOUR HISTORY id like to take a side but sadly no one knows what they are talking about

  • yanis

    dont need morality lessons from you son,just feel sorry for u’r self.u still young for talking with me about life and knowledge ,whene you have no idea about the person u talking with better to stay a way..

  • yanis

    go read algeria’s history and you’ll find out if we sympathize with othomans ,we never did ignorant,they were enemies ,as french and arabian of banou hilal…..you you still youn to talk about those things , still have a long way to anderstand

  • Leen

    Hah, Yea exactly..the match wouldve been canceled, dumbass!
    & now, it actually did prove why you guys faked the attack, you lost 2-0! Honestly i have never seen peopler kinder than egyptians.

    See even, now your being to violent about it, for no reason. while, when you poisened their food, and attacked our players, we did nothing. that proves how civislized people we are.

    while, your people, started attacking your players in egypt, after you lost. and, you talk about others for not being civilized? i have never seen any one hit their own people, their countries players cause they lost. wow.

    You guys should seriously get over it. i was on both sides before this. but after i have seen how all the algerians are commenting, im with the egyptians!.. hell lot of my friends are egyptians, and they are just the most amazing people, and since you dont consider your self an arab fine. then your not really part of anything. your not a “European Country” “Or Asian” Your arab, you don’t want to be that, even better.

    seriously, you guys have weird attitudes!

  • Leen

    & also, i have noticed, the egyptians are the ones, who are more calm, nto cussing, not insulting for not reason. and you algerians, are teh ones insulting everyone and everything, egyptians, arabs, and religion.. which is pretty messed up. Proves why your players did that and why your still defending them after everyone now knows the truth.

  • yanis

    hee leen , ,know u ‘r fucking egyptien bitch.,the only thing i like about u is to fuck , ask my egyptien bitch sh’ll tell u how she loves algerian dicks,im sure y’r one of the hockers and belly dancer.we beat your bitchs in algiers by 3,and w’ll beat the hell of’em in soudan.arab is somthing,islam is something els,it not because u’r asshole is arabian everyone should be an arab bitch,looke at u’r ignorance ((your not a “European Country” “Or Asian” Your arab, )),what the fuck are you saying here,what about africa bitch .let me tell you something .people like you who dislike me arabs,u’r fucking race wanted always to erase others traditions and culture,my dad and mon didn’t teach me arabic bitch,arabic isn’t the language i comunicate with my society,you want to know who i am bitch.im an algerian amazigh

  • yanis

    loooke at this ..,all the videos shows the beating of the players,wich is evident,even the journaliste of canal+ was a witness for what happened in the bus,and recored every thing,all the world watched u’r fucking uncivilization ,and your fucking liers pretend that algerians did that,witch stupide person would believe that.it’s a pure egyptien habit ,we’v seen your fucking race whene you played against ess (tunisia) ,and zambia 1994,and ivory cost ,even drogba said : when u play against egypt it’s awar not a mutch.you are the greatest liers ever mother fuckers,and you pretend to be muslims,y’r shame of y’r own arabic race.that the same thing you do with palestine and everybody.

  • llm

    if the algerians players did that to cancel the match.why whene the algerian doctor asked them if they feel ok and they are able to play,they were with playing the match ,and they didn’t want to report it to another date,because the fifa said that it’s to the algerian doctor to determine wheter they will play or not..

  • Leen

    dislike you arabs? :S
    are you mentally ill or something? =\ mental problems and all? im serious, you should check, you are the one disliking everything! and arabs not me wtf

    honestly, i didnt read what you wrote, just part.. cause, your honestly stupid. i dont like insulting people, but maybe its normal for algerians to be stupid, i don’t know, but you are. you are stupid.

    i saw the videos, i didnt see any rocks. did you? did you see an egyptian in the video throwing a rock on the bus? no, so shutup already wtf…

    & for the other person who commented.. if you break a nail, you cant go like i cant play cause of my nail, right? they cant act like its serious, because then they will get kicked out..

    fifa, wanted to check with the doctors if they can play or not, or if its serious.. and it wasnt serious, so they had to play.. it doesnt even matter, i dont know why its such a big deal. &, have you seen the rocks? like have you seen in any of the videos any egyptian throwing a rock? no, so i dont know why everyone is believing it… plus, there is a video, the player, shows us the rocks they say we threw at them

    omg, they cant be serious!, the bus was moving, and they say there was Alot of people and cars, and how come there are no dents at all on the bus!? .. and the rocks are pretty heavy and big, the ones they claimed to be the ones thrown at them.. if it was thrown, they would be hurt more than that.. really.. imagin, me throwing that kind of rock at you, you’d prbbly die.. not scratch your head or hand..

    people should seriously start getting over this anyway…

    & algerians say, they welcomed us with flowers, & that we welcomed you with stones. poisoning our whole soccer team, making noises all night so the players wouldnt sleep, and attacking our playeres is NOT FLOWERS!

    and even your algerian fans, said the egyptians welcomed them so much.. only your messed up players said that.

    & yanis, or whatever, your weird name is… stop cussing already =S.. i mean, what the hell… is that all you can do? thats why you guys are not civilized, every algerian post i have seen, had cussing in it..

    which is the stupidest thing ever, really. Go get your brain checked, or maybe thats just the natural you… Stupid, cz i have never seen stupider comments. Yours just make me laugh…

    still defending.. when you lost.. Your teams asked fifa to prospone the match, and the match results show why now.

    Get over it already ok? stop cussing at people retard, we are the freakin 21 century, you should be more civilized than this.
    your acting like no soccer team on earth has EVER been attacked, (it didnt happen but whatever, believe what you wna believe).. your making such a big deal out of it…

    you guys have no sportsmanship spirit at all, you would still play the game, even if you have been cheating. poisoning our players, and we didnt complain, cause WE ARE civilized people, honestly, your just proving to me more and more, how weird algerian people are, and how uncivilized and aggressive you guys are.

  • SAmi

    Egyptians are insane. Reminds me of Serbs blaming Bosnians during the war of killing their own people.
    When a nation lies as frequently as Egyptians, anything seems possible. Algeria has a very patriarchal culture – it would be considered shameful to do anything other than play even when injured. Algeria should have walked away from the match.

    One thing is for sure – I will never support Egypt again at anything. You people are on another planet. To rederess certain lies perpetrated:

    1) Egyptian team were greeted with flowers by algerian supporters
    2) They were not poisoned
    3) They played their best and lost
    4) Egypt has a good team, but on the whole they are v arrogant – look at Mido vs shehata on youtube
    5) Algerians have beaten Egypt much more frequently historically and were top of the group, they were on winning form. Something was obvisouly wrong with them in Cairo. They definately did not play as well as in previous games – check wikipaedia for stats Algeria vs Egypt.
    6) Algerians have absolutely no fear of Egyptians at any sport or anything else for that matter. Look at the teams the Algerian National squad play for and look where the Egyptians play
    7) Many teams (Tunisia, Ivory Coast, Morocco) have complained about Egyptians not letting them sleep the nights before matches, and fights picked with players.
    8) Egyptian football federation president called on Egyptians to have ‘a stone ready for every Algerian’ prior to tha macteh in Cairo

    Wh Hosni Mubarak put pressure on the sports ministry to provide a win:
    9) Egypt is in a dire economic situation – the people need distracting from lack of water and high food prices
    10) Egypt is hated in the arab world. The wall against the Gazans, stopping food and medical convoys getting through has eroded the credibility of the Mubarak regime.

    Algerian Antar Yahia has been voted Arab player of the year – shows where the Arab world stands.
