According to AP:

" About 100 Hungarian fans wearing black near one corner of the stadium in Marseille attempted to climb over a fence and join up with another group of Hungarian fans behind the goal."

"There was pushing and shoving between fans and stewards before the stewards briefly backed off.

"Many of the fans managed to cross over before riot police moved in and blocked off the area, allowing stewards to return. There did not appear to be any clashes between fans and police."

Euro 2016 has been marred by violence, especially in Marseille last weekend when Russian fans confronted English supporters before, during and after the Russia v England game.
