Saprissa soccer fans tangle with police in Limón

Fuerza Pública officers faced off again against soccer fans Sunday in Limón. Police said they confiscated three firearms and a knife as well as a considerable quantity of glass bottles, rocks and some drugs.

Some 22 fans were detained to face allegations of blocking the public right-of-way and firing guns in populated areas.

One police officer was hit in the head with a rock.

The fans were mostly followers of the Saprissa soccer team that won its contest against Limón Sunday. The fans managed to block for a time Ruta 32, the highway that linked Limón to Guåpiles and eventually San José.
