ZURICH – Four men were arrested on Sunday night after one of them threatened three French nationals with a gun, Zurich police said Monday.

The four men had met the three French fans at the city’s main train station about selling tickets for the Euro 2008 football tournament, said police.

When an argument broke out, one of the four men took out a handgun, aiming it at the three French. One of the Frenchmen managed to escape and alert police.

Officers said they had arrested two youths from the former Serbia-Montenegro aged 18 and 19, a 23-year-old Albanian and a 17-year-old Lebanese national.
