Argentina's chronic soccer violence flared up again on Sunday when fans of title favorites Huracan clashed and left two dead and two badly injured, hospital sources said on Monday. Fighting among rival factions of fans of the same team began at halftime in Huracan's 3-0 home win over Arsenal and, with many brandishing guns and knives. The confrontations worsened in the streets around the stadium in Parque Patricios after the match. "They clashed at the hospital entrance and when we heard gunfire we called the police," the manager of local Penna hospital, Jorge Bilecio, told reporters.

Chief duty doctor Angela Toscano said: "A first group of wounded people, all between 28 and 30 years old, arrived (at the hospital) on Sunday around 9:30 pm, one with a bullet wound close to his heart who died. "Another patient with a chest wound was operated on but died at 7:40am today (Monday)," she added.
