Five Croats jailed after massive brawl at Belgrade derby

Belgrade police evacuated some supporters on to the pitch during the derby between Partizan and Red Star
A brawl at a Belgrade match in December left at least 20 injured.

Five Croats who were arrested in Serbia after a massive fan brawl at a Belgrade derby last month will serve four to six months in prison as part of a plea bargain deal with the prosecutors.

Lawyer Maja Trkulja said on Tuesday they are expected to serve their prison sentences in Serbia and be banned from entering the country for another five years.

The group pleaded guilty to "violent behaviour at a sports event" while at the match between Belgrade rivals Red Star and Partizan. At least 20 people were injured.

Alhough clashes between Partizan and Red Star fans have been common, the appearance of Croats at a stadium in Serbia is highly unusual because of tension stemming from their war in the 1990s.
