Police say the clashes involved at least 30 people and occurred early Monday at the island's main town of Iraklio between fans of Cretan top division club OFI and Irodotos, a small local team.

Four youths have been arrested in connection with the clashes and another two have been detained for questioning, according to a police statement.
