Ten police officers were injured and 30 people arrested following crowd violence at the end of Thursday’s Algerian top-flight match between USM Alger and CS Constantine, officials announced on Friday. The arrests, after league leaders USM Alger beat CS Constantine 2-1, were for “public order offences and the possession of drugs,” the national police force said in a statement. The latest incidents come following reports on Wednesday that Algerian police were under investigation following social media images of officers apparently attacking fans after a first division match between Mouloudia Club d’Alger (MCA)and USM Bel Abbes on Tuesday.
