Three football fans remanded in custody

Three football fans were remanded in custody for four days on Friday in connection with attacking and injuring police officers during a football cup fixture in Larnaca on Thursday.

Police said they were looking for three other suspects.

Eight police officers were injured during the incident, one seriously.

The trio, aged 22, 23, 24, were arrested for attacking the officers on duty at the Dhigenis Oroklinis versus APOEL Nicosia game, which the away team won 4-2 in extra time.

The suspects were among 50 APOEL fans who tried to get into the stadium without paying.

The group approached the entrance and asked the employee to let them enter without a ticket.

He refused and they started throwing stones at the ground staff and police officers.

The fans then clashed with around six officers, assaulting them using stones, sticks and glass bottles.
