Rabat: Two people were killed and 54 injured in Morocco's largest city on Saturday when rival fans of its Raja de Casablanca football club brawled after a home game.
The running battles, in which fans threw flares and ripped up parts of the Mohammed V stadium, came despite a 2-1 victory for the home team over Chabab Rif Al Hoceima of Al Hoceima in northern Morocco. Footage on Moroccan media showed the fans — dressed in the club's green colours — charging at each other.
It was unclear how the clashes had erupted. The country's DGSN security service said in a statement that 31 people were arrested after the match for involvement in "acts of vandalism".
Ten people had been arrested prior to the game for the same reason. Prosecutors have opened an inquiry into the fan trouble. Rival supporters often clash during Moroccan football ties.
