Police arrested five people outside Tsirion Stadium in Limassol on Tuesday for illegal possession of flares and smoke bombs.

The arrests took place before the Uefa Champions League qualifying game between last season’s league champions Apollon and Israeli side Maccabi Haifa. Apollon won the match 2-0, but was eliminated on aggregate result, having lost the first fixture 4-0.

Two of the people arrested were immediately released, but all of them will have to appear in front of the Nicosia district court on Wednesday.
