Yobs accused of starting stampedes at a Good Friday procession sparked panic among people by shouting ‘Allah is Great’, it emerged today.

Eight people were arrested over the incidents in the Spanish city of Seville which left 17 people needing hospital treatment.

Local authorities said at least two of the people arrested shouted out ‘Ala es grande’ – ‘Allah is Great’ in English – and others slogans in support of Basque terrorist organisation ETA.

Eight people are still in hospital, including a 60-year-old man who suffered head injuries. His condition was described as serious.
Around 100 people required medical treatment, mostly at the scene.

Seven locals aged between 19 and 47 were held along with a Senegalese national. Some have been described as well-known criminals.

Emergency services stressed that the eight people arrested are not of Arabic origin.

And police have ruled out any link between the suspects and terrorist groups and say they tried to cause problems in acts of ‘pure vandalism’.

Three of the suspects – caught carrying metal bars which they are believed to have used to bang against street furniture to cause the chaos – have been remanded in prison after appearing before a judge in a private court hearing.

The trio, aged in their forties, have been described as career criminals.
