Egypt soccer protests hit restive Suez Canal city

CAIRO — Thousands of soccer fans enforced a work stoppage Sunday in Egypt’s restive city of Port Said to protest what they called government ‘‘injustices,’’ disrupting rail services and forcefully evicting workers from factories and provincial government offices.
