French police have come under scrutiny after allegations of “extremely hostile” behavior towards Liverpool fans who surrounded the Champions League final at the Stade de France in Paris. Video footage of police officers using pepper spray and tear gas against fans for no apparent reason has circulated online. The kick-off was delayed by 36 minutes due to safety concerns UEFA initially blamed the delays on Liverpool fans, and the French government now blames the influx of fake tickets. An investigation is being opened to find out exactly what happened.
