3 more hooligans arrested in Serbia over threats

BY foxsports • December 21, 2009

Serbian police say they have arrested three more football hooligans suspected of chanting death threats against a TV journalist during a Europa League match.

Thousands lashed out at B92 reporter Brankica Stankovic at Wednesday's match between Partizan Belgrade and Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk. They chanted threats and insults while tossing around and puncturing an inflatable rubber effigy of Stankovic.

Stankovic reported in a recent TV documentary that football fan leaders are suspected of serious crimes, including drug trafficking and murder, but remain free.

Saturday's arrest followed the detention Friday of three extremist fans.

Partizan Belgrade fans were behind the fatal beating in September of a French Toulouse fan.
