13 rightists arrested for Morocco fan attacks in Verona

Woman hurt by flying car window shards

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 7 - Italian police on Tuesday night arrested 13 local far-right militants in Verona suspected of attacking revelling Moroccan fans feting their historic World Cup win over Spain by hitting their cars with chains and sticks, clad in black hoodies and clothes, and causing damage to four vehicles as well as slightly injuring a young woman who was hit by the flying shards of broken windows.
    The 13 young far-rightists have been charged with damaging property and injuring people after their violent assaults on the fans' cars that were driving around the centre of the Veneto city after Morocco qualified for the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time with a victory on penalties over 2010 world champs Spain.
