Hertha Berlin ultras clash with police at Borussia Dortmund

Hertha Berlin ultras clashed with riot police at the Westfalenstadion during their team’s Bundesliga match with Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

In the opening minutes of the game, a group of policemen dressed in riot gear entered the area in front of the away section and tried to grab a large Hertha banner. Before kick-off, the banner had been used as part of a tifo celebrating the 15th anniversary of Hertha’s ultras group Hauptstadtmafia.

This police action triggered an angry reaction among the visiting fans. A group of hardcore Hertha fans jumped from their section and began attacking the policemen with flagpoles, forcing them to retreat.
