13 Soccer Players to be Indicted Tuesday


Police will file charges of disorder in a public place and assault, Tuesday, against 13 soccer players suspected of rioting, Friday, at the end of the game between Hapoel Ramat Gan and Bnei Lod at Winter Stadium in Ramat Gan.

Police Commissioner Yochanan Danino estimated, Monday, that the return of police officers to soccer fields would not be a solution to the problem of soccer violence and that the solution would come from the determined war that the police declared on violence in sports. His comments came during a ceremony honoring outstanding officers.
