Bayern, Dortmund fans descend on Wembley for final


LONDON (AP) -Thousands of German football fans have started gathering at Wembley Stadium ahead of the Champions League final.

In the first all-German final, Borussia Dortmund is playing Bayern Munich later Saturday in European football's showpiece match.

Yellow Dortmund shirts were dominating the north London streets around the stadium in the morning.

Fans were supping beer amid a low-key security operation, days after a British soldier was killed in south London on Wednesday.

The official UEFA dinner on Friday was disrupted by three people infiltrating a London venue to protest against the under-21s European Championship being hosted by Israel next month. They got onto the stage behind UEFA President Michel Platini.

UEFA says they "caused a minor disturbance" and "were quickly apprehended and arrested by the police."
