Croatian fans formed a human swastika midway through a friendly soccer match in Italy on Wednesday. Sitting on one end of Livorno's Armando Picchi stadium in a section walled off from Italian fans by large barriers, about 200 Croatian supporters arranged themselves into the Nazi symbol about 30 minutes into Croatia's 2-0 win. Livorno is known as a left-wing town and the Croatian fans were apparently trying to incite the home fans. Police eventually moved in, forcing the fans to stop.
