Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic says on Friday police stopped about 400 Hajduk-Split fans who were returning from a Europa League qualifying match in Bulgaria against Slavia Sofia. Police say the fans carried batons, axes, and some drugs.

Local media carried pictures showing the fan group's name, Torcida, written on a gas station wall along with a "U'' sign associated with Croatia's World War II Ustasha pro-Nazi fighters.
