An estimated 193 football fans were arrested in Morocco on Friday for their alleged involvement in acts of violence before and after Thursday’s 1-1 draw between Raja Casablanca and FAR de Rabat in matchday 23 of the Botola league, the ministry of interior affairs said.

A communiqué said supporters entering or leaving the Casablanca stadium damaged public and private property including shops, vehicles and also caused public disorder in the city.
