Greek police arrested 15 fans of Israeli soccer club Maccabi Tel Aviv after finding them in possession of smoke bombs, flares and firecrackers before a Europa Conference League match against Aris Thessaloniki FC.
Police said the fans, between the ages of 16 and 35, were detained ahead of Thursday’s match during a security check. The arrests were announced Friday morning.
The fans were scheduled to appear before a prosecutor later Friday. Five of the suspects are minors, police said.
Aris won the match 2-1.
