Greek football league suspended after violence

The Greek government has suspended the country’s top football league indefinitely in an attempt to crack down on violence.

The action follows weekend clashes between Olympiakos and Panathinaikos fans, and a brawl between club officials at a board meeting of league organisers on Tuesday.

The Greek league has already been suspended twice this season because of football-related violence. Newly-elected ruling party Syriza have pledged to stamp out the problem.
