Violence follows England defeat
Hooliganism has dogged the 1998 World Cup
Violence has broken out in the centre of Toulouse after England's World Cup defeat by Romania.
Police are reported to have said that one person had been stabbed, but no further details were immediately available.
Local people dashed for cover as scuffles broke out, bottles were thrown and at least one shop window was smashed, amid chanting by fans.
But police were said to have kept their distance and most of the crowd quickly dispersed.
Arrests at home
There was also some trouble among England supporters at home. In Norwich a police officer was taken to hospital after a fight broke out in a pub during the game.
There were several arrests in Bedford after police in riot-control uniform escorted 200 fans through the town immediately after the match.
In France the run-up to the game had seen England fans generally well behaved, although authorities took tough measures in an effort to reduce the risk of trouble.
Shortly before the match, a journalist with the Press Association news agency was attacked by England supporters close to the ground. He suffered a broken collar bone.
Attack with iron bar
The outbreak in Toulouse is the latest example of violence which has marred the 1998 World Cup in France.
On Sunday a French policeman was left fighting for his life after he was attacked with an iron bar by a mob following battles involving German fans.
On Monday four Englishmen were deported from France under a new strategy to root out known troublemakers before any offence is committed.
There was street fighting in Marseille, last week, in the run-up to England's initial game against Tunisia.
