MARSEILLE, France (AFP/REUTERS) - Hungarian supporters briefly clashed with stewards in the stadium at the Hungary-Iceland Euro 2016 match in Marseille on Saturday (June 18), AFP reporters said.

The Hungarians had been trying to climb a fence in the Stade Velodrome to join up with another group of Hungarians when stewards intervened.

Punches were thrown before riot police intervened.

A Reuters witness saw police officers enter the stands in the Stade Velodrome.

Euro 2016 has been marred by violence, especially in Marseille last weekend when Russian fans confronted English supporters before, during and after the Russia v England game.
