Two dead in clashes between football fans in Colombia

Bogota  - Two Colombian football fans died in separate clashes with hooligans, officials said Tuesday.

Fans of clubs Deportes Tolima and Deportivo Cali clashed on a road in central Colombia on the way back from their teams' away matches. Some Cali hooligans chased three Tolima fans, and one of them fell down a ravine, said Colonel Israel Robayo, police commander in the province of Tolima. Several Cali fans were arrested.
