Soccer: Juve fans in hot water over air-disaster banner (ANSA) - Turin, March 4 - Several Juventus fans have been identified and reported to prosecutors over banners displayed at a recent derby match that celebrated the 1949 Superga air disaster in which 31 people were killed, including 18 players of city rivals Torino.

One of the two banners displayed during the February 23 match at the Juventus Stadium, which Juve won 1-0, read: "when you fly, think of Toro".

On Tuesday Italian police conducted several searches in relation to the case. Juventus were fined 25,000 euros over the banners.
