Numerous Juve fans arrested in Amsterdam


The Hague (AFP) – Tens of Juventus supporters have been arrested in possession of dangerous objects ahead of their Champions League quarter-final first leg tie against Ajax in Amsterdam, Dutch police said on Wednesday.

Two separate groups were stopped by officials, the first in a metro station and the next in the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Photos of a confiscated knife, fireworks, pepper spray, flares, a hammer and a baton were handed out in a press release by law enforcement authorities in the Netherlands.
