Football hooligans attack bus

Trnava football hooligans attacked a bus carrying Banská Bystrica football fans arriving in Trnava for a match on Saturday.

The hooligans stopped the bus by breaking its windows and brutally beat up the passengers including a pregnant woman. Although the police ended the assault within five minutes, three victims ended up in the hospital. They talked about 50-100 attackers, but the police have not confirmed the number.

"The worst thing was that they recorded the whole attack on a video camera," said one of the attacked fans.

Head of the Spartak Trnava fan club Mikulas Rožnák denied that the hooligans were members of the club.
