Polish PM vows to get tough on thugs

13 June 2012 03:47

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk on Wednesday vowed to get tough with fans who marred a high-profile Euro 2012 match between the national side and Russia, calling them "idiots" who would feel the full force of the law.

More than 180 supporters were detained after police were forced to use water cannon, tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse violent fans who clashed on the streets of the capital Warsaw on Tuesday.

"It (the violence) really wasn't any historic Polish-Russian battle but rather involved several hundred idiots from both sides," Tusk told reporters. "We'll teach them all a lesson, whether they're Polish or Russian or someone else."
