AMMAN — Fans of rival Jordanian football teams clashed after a match Friday, injuring 250 people in violence that pointed to the deep divisions between the nation's native Bedouin clans and its Palestinians.

Most of the injuries occurred when a large metal fence separating spectators from the playing field in the Amman stadium collapsed during Friday night's unrest between fans of national teams Wehdat and Faisali, said police spokesman Col. Ahmed Abu-Hamad. Thirty policemen were among the injured, he said.
