Banned for soccer violence

Eight-year-olds back in action

Southern Sweden's soccer football association has lifted a suspension of a team of eight-years olds - banned after angry parents chased a 16-year old referee around the field and attacked him because they thought he made a negative ruling against the team.

The youngster's team has instead been slapped with a 700 US dollar fine.
