Romanian president condemns soccer fans

Romanian President Traian Basescu is quite dissatisfied because of soccer fans attacked a television cameraman at last week's derby between Steaua and Dinamo.

Cameraman Robert Cristea had his leg broken and received other injuries Saturday when assaulted by a group of Steaua fans who'd climbed a fence to enter the stadium after clashing with police outside.

"The fans' attack on journalists is not normal," Basescu said. "Violence is not normal in a civilized world."

More than 1,000 officers were at the game, but police were widely criticized for failing to help Cristea after footage he filmed showed a mounted officer riding nearby without intervening to stop the assault.

One fan is clearly visible in the footage as he attacks Cristea with a chain. The camera's lens is then broken, but filming continues.

"When I saw the policemen half a meter behind me are not intervening, I took the broken camera and filmed the attackers' faces," Cristea said on Romanian sports Web site onlinesport.ro.

He was treated for his injuries at a local hospital and released.

The footage and other images are being used to try to identify the attackers, the riot police said in a statement Monday.

The statement added the men who attacked Cristea were part of a group of about 80 Steaua fans who had fought with police minutes earlier when attempting to enter the stadium through a broken fence.

Violent incidents are common at Bucharest matches between fans of the city's top three teams, Steaua, Dinamo.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
