French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said that some football fans are to be deported due to mass clashes among the fans at the start of the European Championship.

According to the head of the government, these people just cannot remain in the country.

On June 14, French police is carrying out an operation in the town of Mandelieu-la-Napoule. It’s aimed against the initiators of unrest among fans. These measures were taken after police officers had checked 29 Russian fans suspected of involvement in mass clashes before and after the match between Russia and England in Marseille.

The fans were going to Lille. There will be a match between Russia and Slovakia on June 15. The fans are to be deported now.
