Some 150 Russians
were behind much
of the violence in
Marseille ahead of
the Euro 2016
match between
England and Russia,
French prosecutors
have said.
Ten people, including
six Britons, three
French and an
Austrian, face an
immediate trial,
Marseille prosecutor
Brice Robin said.
But he said just two
Russians had been
arrested, both for a
pitch invasion.
About 35 people have
been injured, including
four whose conditions
were said to be
serious, after the
violence.
Police deployed tear
gas to disperse
football fans on a
number of occasions
during three days of
clashes in Marseille.
On Saturday England
Russia drew 1-1.
'Extremely well
trained'
Mr Robin told a news
conference: "These
people [the Russians]
were well prepared
for ultra-rapid, ultra-
violent action.
"These are extremely
well trained people."
Most of the 35 people
who were injured in
the fighting were
English, Mr Robin said,
adding that two
Russian nationals
were being expelled
from the country.
A 50-year-old English
fan is in a critical
condition with severe
brain injuries after
being attacked by
Russia supporters
armed with iron bars.
A 16-year-old Briton
was among those
arrested and charged
with throwing bottles
during violence in
Marseille.
Mr Robin said the
British teenager was
in custody and that he
had personally spoken
to tournament
organisers Uefa to
have his future
tickets cancelled.
Twenty people have
been arrested in
connection with the
violence.
