Bastia vandalism cost 1m euros – prefect


BASTIA, France: Vandalism after Saturday’s Ligue 1 clash between Bastia and Paris Saint-Germain caused one million euros ($1.1m; £732,000) in damage, according to the local French prefect on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). Two banks were set on fire near Bastia’s Stade Armand Cesari. The vandalism involved a “group of 40 to 50 people” who watched the match and were armed with “petrol, baseball bats and pickaxe handles”, according to the Haute-Corse prefect Alain Thirion. Thirion praised Bastia for their marshalling of the game, which PSG won 2-0. The local public prosecutor, Nicolas Bessone, vowed to hunt down and punish the perpetrators.
