M/S Football fans throwing chairs at police Clashes broke out in Amsterdam between supporters of the Turkish team Fenerbahce and riot police in the centre of the Dutch capital, Thursday, ahead of the key Europa League match between the Turkish side and Ajax. Supporters threw chairs, tables, fireworks and glasses at each other and riot police in the city's central Dam Square, resulting in the arrests of two of the so-called rioters. Police attempted to disperse the crowd with horse-mounted officers and police dogs. As tension mounts ahead of Thursday's match, police have been given emergency stop and search powers near the Amsterdam's Zuidoost district stadium where the two teams will go head to head. Ajax have gained two points from their three matches so far in the Europa League, and therefore have to beat Fenerbahce to move to the knock-out rounds.
