Spain: Police arrest 2 for death in football fight

December 16, 2014

MADRID (AP) — Spanish police say they have arrested two men for the death of a football fan following a brutal street fight between rival radical fan groups before a match in Madrid two weeks ago.

Spanish police wrote on their official Twitter account that “32 ultras arrested in Madrid, Avila and Toledo for the violent incidents at Manzanares, among them, 2 alleged perpetrators of the homicide.”

On Nov. 30, a large clash between Atletico Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna “ultra” groups led to 43-year-old Deportivo fan Francisco Javier Romero Taboada dying later from injuries after he fell into the Manzanares River during the fight.
