Soccer coach's firing protested

May 24, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Demonstrators trashed shops and smashed windows at the headquarters of the country's soccer association to protest the firing of the national team's coach.

Police said they arrested as many as 35 people. Two officers were slightly hurt.

The association said it fired Meho Kodro last week because he refused to let the team play a friendly match against Iran.
