Soccer: Three more arrested over Rome attack on Spurs fans

Rome, February 6 - Three men were arrested Wednesday in connection with a vicious attack last November on fans of London club Tottenham Hotspur in a Rome pub. The men, aged between 25 and 30 years old, included two 'ultra' fans of the Lazio football club, police said. An AS Roma fan had previously been arrested for the brutal attack that left English one supporter in a serious condition, so Wednesday's development supports the hypothesis that the raid was carried out by fans of more than one team. Anti-Semitism was cited as one of the possible motives behind the attack at a pub in the famous Campo dei' Fiori square. One day after the attack, some Lazio's fans aimed an anti-Semitic chants at Tottenham Hotspur supporters and displayed a pro-Palestinian banner during an Europa League match. Tottenham, or Spurs, are traditionally considered to have a strong Jewish element in their fan base and followers continue to be proud of this.
