Riot police lobbed tear-gas on to a Marseilles beach yesterday after English fans attacked Tunisian families as their teams met in a World Cup match. England won 2-0 with goals from Alan Shearer and Paul Scholes. But when Shearer put his team ahead in the 42nd minute, English fans responded with a hail of bottles aimed at Tunisian supporters, including women and children, on Prado beach, where the match was being shown on a giant screen. About 300 English fans jumped police barricades, throwing stones and bottles at about 150 Tunisians, witnesses said. It was the second such clash in less than three hours and the latest in a third day of violence involving English fans, fuelled by lager and the hot Mediterranean sun. Police intervened outside the stadium before the kickoff when English hooligans threw bottles. Officers were seen beating some of the English with sticks before carting them off. Around 10 arrests were made near the stadium. The disturbances came after a night of havoc which left Marseilles shopkeepers counting the cost of broken windows and minor looting. Some England fans, bloodstained bandages swathing their heads, returned from medical treatment to continue the fighting. Police made 50 arrests during Sunday night's melee, in which 37 people were injured. Eight people were to appear in court. From early yesterday morning, the CRS anti-riot police met trains coming into the city's two main stations with muzzled dogs, shields and truncheons. They rode in all buses and trains to the stadium, which was ringed by a huge security cordon. Many north Africans live in Marseilles, and the clashes on Sunday night were ugly. 'They did not just involve a small group of fans, there were many from both England and Tunisia,' one witness said. British leaders and police chiefs urged France to make an example of the unruly fans and send them to jail.
