Paris SG fan dies after attack by rival fans

MOST COMMENTED

A 38-year-old fan Paris Saint-Germain fan, who had spent weeks in a coma following an attack by rival PSG supporters, has died. The attack took place during street clashes following a Feb. 28 game. PSG president Robin Leproux called it "a terrible death" and pledged to bring in "heavy, new and efficient measures" to tackle the violence that has long troubled the club.

Preliminary charges for attempted murder were filed against a man suspected of taking part in the assault after he was identified through video surveillance cameras. PSG has long harbored a far-right element among its fans, many of whom gather in the Kop of Boulogne section of the Parc des Princes stadium and have been in conflict with supporters in the Auteuil section at the other end of the stadium.

PSG's next match, against Nice on Saturday, will be played in front of empty stands as a result of the violence, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. Two PSG fans have died in disturbances outside Parc des Princes in the last four years.
