Football fans injured in skirmish

Two football fans were injured after Thursday’s match between Apollon and Aberdeen in Larnaca when a number of fans clashed with stewards at the AEK arena stadium.

According to police, the Aberdeen supporters reacted when it was announced that Apollon fans were going to leave the stadium before them.

To restore order, police had to intervene and use tear gas.

During the skirmishes two Aberdeen fans were injured. They were treated at Larnaca hospital before being discharged, one for a fractured knee and the other one for an injury to his head which needed stitches.

The injured men didn’t want to press charges as they were going to leave the country.
