Football riot injures 15 in Serbia

Serbian football fans have clashed with riot police during a first-division soccer match, leaving at least 10 fans and five policemen injured.

The riots which occurred during a match between Banat Zrenjanin and Red Star
Belgrade, started when Red Star fans tried to burst into the stadium without tickets, police said.

The match, which Red Star won 4-1, was suspended for about 10 minutes because of the clashes between the baton-wielding police and stone-hurling fans.

Two policemen suffered serious injuries from rocks being thrown, police announced.This was the second time Red Star fans rioted in a week.

Last Saturday, they clashed with police in Belgrade after Red Star lost 4-2 to cross-town rival Partizan. During the clashes at least 13 people, mostly policemen were injured.

Red Star leads first division with 45 points, nine ahead of second-placed Partizan.
