Berry pickers in major brawl

Dozens of berry pickers from Bulgaria battled each other in a large brawl Wednesday morning in Gävle, a city 157 kilometres north of Stockholm.

 The cause of the altercation is not currently known.

"They have attacked each other with poles, driven into each other's cars, and even run into each other with cars," said journalist Anders Fall of Swedish Television. Some 35 to 40 seasonal workers were involved in the fight. At least two people were arrested by police and several have been brought to a hospital by ambulance.
