Flowers, candles, scarves, cans of beer laid in memory of 29-year-old Michalis K. who was stabbed to death outside the AEK Football Club Arena in the Athenian suburb of Nea Philadelphia.

New evidence has emerged in the investigation into the murder of AEK F.C. fan Michalis Katsouris during clashes with Croatian football hooligans in Athens last August, as revealed by police sources on Monday.

According to the police sources cited by the state-run news agency AMNA, the DNA of a 35-year-old Greek football supporter has been found on one of the knives collected by the police at the scene of the deadly attack, which also had traces of the victim's blood on it.

The 35-year-old has been detained and questioned about the matter. During his testimony last Friday, he claimed he had a knife on him when the clashes started and that he lost it during the turmoil.

The 35-year-old was arrested and is already in Nafplion prison, serving an earlier outstanding prison sentence of 12 months and a fine for his involvement in previous incidents of football fan violence in the town of Volos.

He is scheduled to be examined by the authorities again in the next few days to determine whether he was involved in the fatal injury of the 29-year-old victim.
