Football fans fight - level 3
A football match got completely out of hand on Sunday when fans clashed with riot police.
The violence erupted ahead of a highly anticipated game between local teams Colo Colo and Barnechea.
Fans threw objects at police and ripped up a security booth as well as urinals as they rioted through Santiago's National Stadium.
Authorities have called on the clubs to identify those responsible for the violence.
“We are going to act against those found responsible and especially against those detained for the acts of violence and damage that happened. Secondly, we are going to go to the courts and also the clubs, banning all access to people who are identified.”
Local media has blamed a gang of hardcore Colo Colo fans for the violence.
Difficult words: out of hand (very crazy), clash (fight), riot police (police which fights violent crowds), erupt (start), anticipated (awaited), booth (small tent or structure), urinal (toilet for men), detain (arrest). hardcore (extreme).
