A group of 20 Russian soccer fans have been deported from France, leaving on a flight to Moscow after French authorities accused them of being involved in hooliganism.

The 20 were part of a larger group of Russians who were detained by French authorities on Tuesday following violent disorder around England's 1-1 draw with Russia last Saturday.

Three others were convicted of offenses related to the violence and sentenced to prison terms of between one and two years
