Violent scenes in Tuscon, Arizona, as hundreds of college basketball fans clashed with police following a game.

“Police brutality! Police brutality!”

Students from the University of Arizona took to the streets after their team was beaten by the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday night.

Police said students threw bottles and firecrackers at officers, with one student being filmed having smoke bombs fired at him before being wrestled to the ground.

Fifteen people were arrested in the incident, with fourteen later being released and around five more complaining of minor injuries.

Difficult words: clash (fight), minor (small).
