French football fan dies after Belgrade riot


A French football fan has died after being attacked before a game in Serbia earlier this month. 28-year-old Toulouse supporter Brice Taton died this morning in hospital in Belgrade. He suffered multiple head and chest injuries when Partizan Belgrade fans attacked him with iron bars and baseball bats in a bar on September 17th. Toulouse won the Europa League match 3-2.

Partizan were thrown out of the competition’s predecessor, the UEFA Cup, in 2007 after their fans rioted at a match at Mostar in Bosnia.
