Soccer Match Ends In Violence

A soccer team in Argentina was escorted from the field after players were attacked by spectators and rival players.

Police were called in to the game in the city of Concepcion Del Uruguay after spectators attacked players of the union soccer club of Totoras with rocks.

According to reports, the technical team from rival club Parque Sur participated in the clashes.

Violence eventually spilled onto the field, with police reportedly using pepper spray to disperse the angry spectators.

Media also reported vandalism of vehicles and property from spectators around the stadium. No arrests have yet been made.

The latest bout of soccer violence comes just days after an argentine fan was killed after suffering a vicious attack by a group of men during a first division match at the weekend.

Violence is endemic in the Argentine game with more than 315 killed at games since 1922.
