Source: Tanjug Mostar — Nine people were injured in violence that broke out in Mostar last night after the World Cup qualifier between England and Croatia, which England won 5-1.

Furious at their defeat, fans from the Croat half of the town began smashing shop windows, before turning on police, who were forced to retaliate firing tear gas.

According to a police statement, six police officers and three fans were injured in the clashes. All six were discharged from hospital after receiving treatment.

Police spokesman Srećko Boras said that eight people had been arrested, three of whom were minors.

Meanwhile, in the Muslim half of the town, the mood was much more festive after Bosnia-Herzegovina’s 1-1 draw against Turkey, putting the home side within touching distance of the finals. Police feared that the violence in the Croat half of the town could spill over the other side of the river, though their fears proved, ultimately, unfounded.
