Serbian ringleader jailed

Serbian fan Ivan Bogdanov has been sent to prison for three years and three months after being found guilty of instigating a riot at a European Championship qualifier in Italy in October.

Bogdanov, 29, wore a black mask over his face as he climbed onto a barrier separating fans from the field, used a wire cutter to slice apart a mesh fence and launched fireworks onto the field.

The match was stopped in the seventh minute with the score at 0-0 and UEFA awarded Italy a 3-0 win, while also ordering Serbia to play its March 25 home match against Northern Ireland in an empty stadium.

Bogdanov was one of four Serbian football fans jailed over the clashes - which saw 16 people injured - for between 30 and 39 months.

"They come from a culture where you're punished if you make a mistake. They know they have committed a crime," said Riccardo Di Rella, a lawyer for one of the men.
