Spurs fans attacked in Lyon for being Jews

IN Lyon, a mob of around 50 locals have attacked Tottenham Hotspur fans drinking in the Smoking Dog pub ahead of their team’s Europa Cup match in the French city tonight. Why? Some of the mob made Nazi salutes. Sours has a vocal Jewish following. Can a connection be made? Dave Eales, is the pub’s landlord. He says:

“At 10.18pm the pub was rammed with Tottenham fans watching the Champions League on the television… They [the attckers] threw projectiles through the windows. There was a stand-off. They didn’t get into the bar. Then it calmed down. Then they came back a second time and it all started again. There were three injured Tottenham fans taken away by ambulance. One of them had a head injury. I’m not sure how bad it was.”
