Clash between football fans in France

  • A Briton has been seriously injured and few others hospitalized in a series of clashes that broke out in Marseille between football fans of two different clubs. The clashes began after the match between England and Russia in Euro 2016 ended in a draw. The Russian fans allegedly crossed the fences that are supposed to keep the rival supporters away from each other and attacked the Britons. The flares lit by the Russian supporters triggered a stampede which injured many. In another such incident there was a clash between the supporters of Ireland and Poland and the police in which six people were injured.
