Hooligans must feel full force of law: minister

Football hooligans who marred Tuesday's Poland-Russia Euro 2012 match with violent clashes in Warsaw must feel the full force of the law, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said Friday.

His comment come a day after courts in the Polish capital meted out the first sentences for the street violence, ranging from fines of 115 euros ($145) to five months behind bars.

Critics have deemed them too lenient and Sikorski told reporters, "I would like to once again urge Poland's judiciary to treat these bandits and hooligans with appropriate severity. We don't need to change the law."
