Rioting fans cause top-division match in Argentina to be abandoned

Rioting fans caused an Argentinian Primera División match between Vélez Sársfield and San Lorenzo to be abandoned on Sunday amid reports that a fan had died in clashes outside the stadium before the match.

The match at the Estadio José Amalfitani in Buenos Aires was halted when visiting San Lorenzo fans broke down the fencing around the pitch and the Vélez goalkeeper was hit by a missile thrown from the crowd.

The wife of San Lorenzo fan Ramón Aramayo, who died yesterday before the game against Velez Sarsfield, has placed the blame for her husband's death firmly on the police.
