On Sunday, Greek officials charged 35 more people in connection with the death of a young football fan who was stabbed before a Champions League game. This brings the total number of people charged in connection with the event to 105.

Of those, 102 are from Croatia and are thought to be connected to the “Bad Blue Boys.” These are die-hard Dinamo Zagreb fans who went to Greece on Monday, the day before their team played AEK Athens in a Champions League playoff.

Two Greeks and an Albanian make up the rest. According to the same legal source, the police are looking for another Greek national who is also thought to have been involved in the attack that killed someone.

Michalis Katsouris, who was 29 years old, died after being stabbed in a fight that broke out in the streets of Athens.

After he died, UEFA moved the third-round qualifying match between the two teams from Tuesday to August 19.

All of the people who are still in jail have said they had nothing to do with Katsouris’s death.

They are being charged with murder, being part of a crime group, and having guns without a permit.
