Rabat - Many observers agree that the hooliganism events that took three lives and made several scores of injuries last Saturday after a soccer game when two groups supporting the same team, which, it is interesting to note, had won, clashed in a war-like confrontation are but the tip of the iceberg. From a field in which supposedly noble values of sportsmanship and clean and loyal competition are expected to prevail, the stadium was turned into a battle field on which all firing was friendly and wounds and casualties made by comrades.
