Atletico Nacional's Copa Libertadores celebrations leave four dead

Atletico Nacional fans celebrate their Copa Libertadores final on Wednesday.

Celebrations in Colombia after Atletico Nacional won the Copa Libertadores final on Wednesday ended in violence, with four fans killed in a night of boisterous revelry.

Authorities say they registered more than 600 street fights after Medellin's Atletico Nacional defeated Ecuador's Independiente del Valle 1-0.

It was Nacional's second-ever title in the premier South American club tournament and the first by a Colombian team since 2004.

One of those killed was wearing the shirt of a rival Medellin club when he was slashed in the neck with a knife.

There were also reports that mobs of Nacional fans attacked adversaries in Bogota.

Police say at least 23 people were injured.
