Reuters report that: a gang armed with guns and baseball bats attacked an Argentinian football club’s (Newell’s Old Boys) Stadium while new members were enrolling. The gang were rumoured to be linked to the club’s own supporters and may be linked to leadership elections the previous month. Twenty-one people were arrested.

Guess its a good job the England Cricket Board don’t have a problem with rival hardcore fans!
