Police to detain 42 Russians who were on their way to Lille

According to La Provence, French police will detain all 42 Russians that they intercepted in the early hours of this morning leaving the Ibis hotel in Mandelieu in a truck heading for Lille, where their country is due to take on Slovakia tomorrow.

Prosecutors armed with footage from the violence in Marseille at the weekend intend to charge as many of these individuals as possible, should they be able to identify them from the evidence that they have available to them.

In the meantime, all 42 will remain in police custody.
