Berlin police arrests 19 people after World Cup opener. Police said that, across the whole of the city, 19 people many of them drunk were arrested for offenses including bodily harm. They characterized the figure as very small given the number of people celebrating.

More than 300,000 people gathered Friday on the so-called "fan mile" in front of the Brandenburg Gate to watch host Germany beating Costa Rica 4-2 on giant television screens.

"If it stays like this, we can be very satisfied," said Juergen Klug, the officer leading the Berlin police effort, reports the AP.
