PARIS—French po­lice have made more than 1,000 foot­ball­re­lated ar­rests since the start of Euro 2016 and 34 peo­ple have been or­dered ex­pelled, the in­te­rior min­is­ter said in an in­ter­view pub­lished Mon­day.

“Since the start of the com­pe­ti­tion, (po­lice) have car­ried out more than 1,000 ar­rests, lead­ing to 600 cus­tody orders and 56 con­vic­tions,” In­te­rior Min­is­ter Bernard Cazeneuve told La Provence news­pa­per.

Sup­porter clashes around the Eng­land-Rus­sia match in Mar­seille marked the start of the month-long tour­na­ment which runs un­til July 10. Cazeneuve said 34 peo­ple have been or­dered ex­pelled from France. He did not give a break­down, but said many were linked to the vi­o­lence be­fore the June 11 game in Mar­seille at which 35 peo­ple were in­jured. At least 23 Rus­sians have been ex­pelled.—AFP

Ger­many’s An­dre Greipel cel­e­brates think­ing he won, but Bri­tain’s Mark Cavendish, wear­ing the best sprinter’s green jer­sey, right, crosses the fin­ish line with a small ad­van­tage to win the third stage of the Tour de France cycling race.
