BOGOTA -- A 25-year-old was killed and three other soccer fans hospitalized in street clashes which ended with the arrests of 160 on Sunday, police said.

The violence began before a match when fans from Colombian league leader Deportes Tolima, defying 1,000 police sent to reinforce security, barraged with rocks and stones the bus carrying the visiting Millionarios squad from Bogota.

Following Tolima's 1-0 victory, the disturbances resumed and Millionarios fan Alejando Galindo was killed when he was run over by a bus. Three more Millionarios fans were taken to a hospital in Ibague, 130 kilometers (80 miles) west of the capital, and released on Monday with light injuries, authorities said.

Those arrested were under the influence of drugs and alcohol, Col. Gilberto Ramirez, police commander in Tolima province, said on Monday.
