The bodies of two men were found in a building the youths torched, and at least 83 others were injured.

Welsh soccer fans rampaged through a seaside suburb early Friday, fighting Greek fans and damaging three taverns before police arrested 14 of them, authorities said. Prosecutor George Koliokostas charged the 14 fans of the Swansea City soccer club with causing damage to property and said they would remain in custody until their trial today before a three-member magistrates' court. The Welsh club lost, 3-2, to Panathinaikos of Athens in a European soccer championship match Wednesday.
