A Waterlogged FC Hansa Fan Club
The second division rivalry between the German clubs FC Hansa Rostock and St. Pauli ended with a 2-0 victory for St. Pauli and some Hansa Rostock supporter being on the receiving end of a water cannon.
Angered by the loss on their home pitch, 500 die hard fans of FC Hansa Rostock tried to breach a police barrier and began throwing bottles and firecrackers. To bring order, the police unleashed a water cannon on the mob. 23 people were arrested and 27, of the 1500, police officers on hand for the match were hurt.
