Eight more remanded over Iraklio death

Eight more people were remanded in custody on Tuesday in connection with the death of a 21-year-old man during a fierce pitched battle between members of rival soccer fan clubs in Iraklio, Crete, in the early hours of Monday, bringing the total number of detentions to 13.

Of the 13 people being held for questioning, two — aged 22 and 24 — have been charged with the murder of the young man, who died of multiple stab wounds at an organized fight between at least 30 fans of the OFI and Irodotos clubs.
