Two fans of Athens bas­ket­ball club Panathi­naikos were hos­pi­tal­ized on Satur­day af­ter be­ing shot dur­ing a clash with sup­port­ers of its crosstown ri­val Olympiakos in Corinth, one of whom was wield­ing an AK-47 as­sault ri­fle. A 22-year-old man, re­port­edly the son of a lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cer, faced a pros­e­cu­tor yes­ter­day in con­nec­tion with the at­tack which in­jured two men, one se­ri­ously. Po­lice said the two men, both in their late 20s, were hit when an Olympiakos sup­porter opened fire with the as­sault ri­fle at a group of ri­val fans. The clashes had ini­tially bro­ken out late on Fri­day af­ter Panathi­naikos de­feated Mon­tepaschi Siena in Spain to reach the Euroleague fi­nal.
