Clashes erupted between soccer fans in Marseille Saturday before a Euro 2016 match as French authorities tighten security measures on the streets.

Saturday was the third day in a row that fans clashed in the southern French city ahead of the encounter between England and Russia.

“Police intervened in a clash between English, Russian and French supporters in the Vieux-Port district,” said local police chief Laurent Nunez as reports said security forces fired tear gas at fans fighting in the area.
