A drone caused a mass brawl at an international soccer game in Europe on Tuesday evening which forced the match to be abandoned.
The already politically tense European Championship qualifying match between Serbia and Albania was being played in the Serbian capital of Belgrade when, in the 40th minute, the game was briefly stopped. A small unmanned craft appeared over the players' heads trailing an Albanian flag. The Serbian defender Stefan Mitrovic then grabbed the flag, sparking a tussle with the Albanian players who were trying to keep it out of Serbian hands.
A violent melee then ensued between Albanian and Serbian players with team officials and substitutes rushing onto the field to help their colleagues. Riot police then became involved when fans invaded the pitch and flares were thrown. The players retreated into the tunnel before English referee Mark Atkinson decided to abandon the game with the match still goalless.
