Three arrested over murder of fan
MONTEVIDEO, March 21 (Reuters) - Three men have been arrested in connection with the murder of a fan of first division club Cerro following a match 10 days ago, a judge said on Tuesday.
Judge Julio Olivera Negrin said the three men, who are being held in custody, were suspected of being accomplices in the incident.
He told reporters that police were still searching for the main culprits.
The Uruguayan championship has been indefinitely suspended following the attack outside the Centenario stadium, where Cerro were playing Penarol, on March 11.
Hector da Cunha, 35, died in hospital after being attacked by a gang of around 15 Penarol supporters while he was waiting at a bus stop with his wife and child.
Police said the Penarol supporters made off with his Cerro hat as a trophy.
In a separate incident, a 17-year-old Penarol supporter was stabbed by Cerro fans.
Penarol have since been deducted 12 points and Cerro three.
The government and the football authorities have both called on each other to do more to curb soccer violence.
