N African ‘Youths’ In Soccer Belgium Riots

From those celebrants of the gorgeous mosaic at the Associated Press:

200 arrested after Belgium riots

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) — Police have detained nearly 200 youths after rioting in Brussels sparked by a simmering dispute between rival groups after a soccer match.

Police spokesman Gerald Noon says 26 people, including 14 police officers, were injured in the clashes late Friday. Officers believe troublemakers prearranged the confrontation over the Internet.

Noon says the violence stemmed from a confrontation last weekend between North African youths and fans of Anderlecht soccer club after it won the Belgian Cup Final.

He told VRT radio Saturday that further arrests could follow after investigators review camera footage to try to identify troublemakers.

Hmmm.

“North African youths” eh?

What a shock.
