CAIRO, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- Some 270 people were injured Sunday in Egypt's seaside city of Port Said during a mass funeral for the victims of Saturday's clashes between security forces and protesters, a health ministry spokesman said.
"The injured people have been transferred to nearby Port Said hospitals, and the types of injuries and their reasons are still being examined," the spokesman, Ahmed Omar, told Xinhua.
During the funeral procession, gunshots were heard amid shouts of anger and sorrow, while some family members of the dead people in front of the Port Said morgue vowed for revenge.
The massive funeral procession was held for the 29 people killed in Saturday's clashes, which erupted after a court sentenced to death 21 suspects in a Port Said football riot that killed 74 in February 2012.
Besides the 29 killed, two police officers were also killed in Saturday's clashes, while over 300 were injured.
The health ministry sent Saturday air ambulances to Port Said to move the seriously wounded cases to Cairo hospitals.
"We transferred at least 18 seriously wounded people via air ambulances from Port Said to Cairo Saturday, but today we have not used air ambulances yet until we categorize the injuries," the spokesman said.
