Virtually unheard of in the city – but a running street fight between rival gangs broke out between Eaux-Vives and the Jardin Anglais.

Many suggested the main ring-leaders were from neighbouring France, but Geneva authorities have dismissed this.

Police say they will continue to interview the main figures – but are only releasing limited information as many of those arrested are minors.
