Italy-Croatia Euro Qualifier Suspended After Burning Flares And Rioting

Riot police fought with soccer fans as a flood of flares landed upon the field and forced a temporary suspension of play in Milan at today's Euro 2016 qualifier between Italy and Croatia.

The match was 1-1 in the 73rd minute when flares came raining down upon the pitch, coating the stadium in thick smoke. It appears Croatian fans were responsible for the bulk of the interruption, though Fox Sports reported that Italian supporters were not without fault.
