Spanish police arrested 119 people in Barcelona in the early hours of this morning as thousands took to the streets to celebrate that their team won the Champions League.
Barcelona beat Manchester United in the final.
The jubilant scenes turned ugly when rioters began overturning barricades and throwing cans, bottles and stones at police, who responded with rubber bullets. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=si641o4iUJY
Meanwhile four Barcelona fans were killed in Nigeria when an outraged Manchester United fan drove his minibus into a crowd of celebrating Barcelona supporters. A police spokeswoman in the town of Ogbo said 10 people were injured and the driver was arrested. ‘The driver had passed the crowd then made a U-turn and ran into them,’ she said. Both teams have large fanbases in the African nation.
The final was played in Rome. In Italy things were relatively calm. Around 20 arrests were made. The run-up to the game saw two stabbings, one of them a young American man who was mistaken for a British fan.
