Police arrested two fans of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer team suspected of setting fire to the team's offices. The fire destroyed historic trophies and mementos, marking the height of a violent campaign by fans upset with the signing of two Muslim players from Chechnya.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Tuesday that the suspects were members of a hardcore group of fans known as "La Familia." The group is routinely abusive toward opposing players, taunting them with racist and anti-Arab chants. Their behavior has had the team docked points and forced it to play before empty stadiums. (AP)
