France to Deport 20 Russian Men Over Soccer Violence

French officials say 20 Russian men will be deported for their role in violence at the European Championship.

Stephane Bouillon, prefect for the region including Marseille, where the violence occurred last week, says the unnamed men will be deported Monday.

They are suspected of “participation in skirmishes linked to the England-Russia game on June 11 in Marseille.”

They are currently being held in a detention center.

The men were among 43 Russian fans detained Tuesday after their bus was stopped by French police near the town of Mandelieu in a check for hooligans.
