Twelve arrested after fighting breaks out outside Athens courthouse

Twelve people were detained outside the Supreme Court on Friday when fighting broke out between rival soccer club supporters.

Olympiakos supporters had gathered at the court for a case related to fan violence in 2011.

At some point, a group of about 15 people wearing black and motorcycle helmets gathered outside and a fight with the Olympiakos fans broke out.

It was not immediately clear if the other group was made up of fans from rival club Panathinaikos.
