MOSCOW -- A young Spartak Moscow ice hockey fan was beaten to death and dozens more suffered serious injuries during a fight at a Russian league game in Voronezh, Moscow television reported Sunday.


TV Center said several hundred fans from both sides clashed during the second period of Saturday's first division game between Spartak and a local side in Voronezh, an industrial town 300 kilometers south of Moscow.


Television footage showed hooligans hurling chairs at each other and onto the ice as police used batons to disperse the crowd. After a 40-minute delay, the game was allowed to continue and Voronezh went on to win 4-2.
