MADRID – The Mossos d’Esquadra Catalan regional police have arrested six Latin American youths in connection with a street fight that ended in the death of a 16-year-old Venezuelan girl.

The Catalan police could not say if the 25 youths that took part in the fight early on Sunday morning were members of organised youth gangs.

The main suspect of the crime is Alexis Emmanuel C.M, 20, a native of the Dominican Republic. The young man is believed to have stabbed his victim to death. The police said that they had recovered the knife that probably caused the death of the Venezuelan adolescent.

The fight took place in a suburb of Barcelona, where the youths had met at a party.

Police could not say what was the cause of the fight.
