Violent scenes as Pak-Afghan fans clash at Cricket World Cup
Pakistan and Afghanistan cricket fans have been seen clashing at the countries’ World Cup game at Headingly in Leeds, England.
Footage from outside the ground reportedly shows Afghanistan fans attacking a Pakistan supporter, while there are also reports of clashes inside the ground.
At least two supporters have been ejected in scenes not normally associated with cricket supporters.
Some Afghan fans were also accused of entering the stadium illegally and harassing Pakistan media personnel covering the World Cup group stage game between the two neighbors.

Among the videos on Twitter is one in which show what look like Afghanistan fans beating up a spectator wearing a Pakistan jersey while another shows another set of fans clashing with security personnel. Most tweets from the ground also implicate the Afghanistan fans of causing the ruckus.
