Slovak hooligans at Miskolc hockey game

Fans of the Zlovan ice hockey team attacked Hungarian supporters and security guards in Miskolc Friday evening.

The Diósgyőr Polar Bears, who will play in the Slovak league from this autumn, hosted the HKM Zlovan team in Miskolc on Friday.

In the break after the second period, a group of guest supporters donned masks, smashed several fences, attacked security guards who tried to stop them, and injured Miskolc fans, including women, children and elderly people.

Police detained several of the hooligans. Both the Miskolc and Zlovan club condemned the violence.
