SHAH ALAM: Five people have surrendered to the police after the authorities issued photographs of 11 people to help in investigations over a fracas during the semi-finals of a football match between Malaysia and Vietnam.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Adnan Abdullah said the five were released after they were questioned on Tuesday.

Police are now looking for 10 more individuals who are believed to be involved in the crowd trouble during the AFF Suzuki Cup match at the Shah Alam Stadium on Sunday night.

Other than the 10, the police have also identified four more people in the case.

SAC Mohd Adnan corrected his previous announcement that photographs of 12 people were issued to the press, saying that two pictures published earlier were actually of the same person.

"After recording the five statements, we hope the others will cooperate and come forward," he said at a press conference at the Selangor police headquarters yesterday.

He said the five who came forward gave their explanation of the events leading to the scuffle with the Vietnamese fans, but he declined to reveal more information due to ongoing investigations.

He advised the public to contact the nearest police station or contact Asst Supt Chang Sing Kong (016-773 3336) or Asst Supt Mohd Amirul Abdullah (012-474 8870).
