Israel police raid arrests dozens of extremist soccer fans

JERUSALEM (AP) Israeli police say they have arrested dozens of members of an extremist soccer fans' group.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said on Tuesday that 56 suspected members of the "La Familia" group of Beitar Jerusalem fans were arrested in an overnight raid.

She says stun grenades, firecrackers and other banned pyrotechnics were confiscated. An undercover agent who had infiltrated the group over the past six months led to the breakthrough.
