THE HAGUE, Nov. 18 (Xinhua) -- A truck driver was arrested after a train accident on Friday in Winsum, in the northern province of Groningen, local media reported.

At around 12:00 p.m. local time (1000 GMT), the driver of a milk truck hit a passenger train, wounding several people. The exact circumstances of the accident are currently being investigated, but the truck driver was arrested for his role in the crash.

Eleven of a total of 18 injured were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The truck driver had no severe injuries. The slightly wounded were transferred to nearby fire stations.

The train was carrying around 30 passengers on its way from Groningen to Roodeschool. The truck left a farmyard and collided with the approaching train at an unguarded railway crossing. The truck then tilted and the train ran off the track. Enditem

The World Cup is the holy grail and Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the prophets - it is not just a game for the hundreds of thousands of soccer fans heading for Brazil.

A growing body of scholars see soccer playing an under-appreciated role as keeper of society's well-being - providing a sense of identity with an almost religious role.

The late Liverpool manager Bill Shankly once said soccer is more important than "life and death". But Pele's "beautiful game" might also be providing a healthy outlet for tribalistic aggression.

"It provides you with an opportunity to side with your country without being violent to another. So in that way it does replace war Yohan Cabaye France Jersey ," said David Ranc, a French sociologist who specializes in group identity in soccer.

"It is a non-violent way of resolving conflict ... and taking sides where there is not that much at stake."

Ahead of the June 12 start to the World Cup, fans are outfitting themselves with wigs, T-shirts and other regalia, and rehearsing the lyrics to patriotic anthems with an eye toward putting up a united national front either at home or in Brazil.

Rather than mere nationalistic zeal Steve Mandanda France Jersey , the behavior might be symptomatic of a deeply entrenched desire to belong, the experts said.

"Identification with a sports team can provide people with an important identity prop ... a sense of belonging in what would otherwise be an isolated existence," according to Eric Dunning, a sports sociologist with the University of Leicester.

"It can help to give people a sense of continuity and purpose in contexts which are highly impersonal and beset by what many experience as a bewildering pace of change."

For some, this can even take on religious overtones.

The new religion?

"The fans of a soccer team form a community of believers that is characterized by distinctively religious forms of behavior Samuel Umtiti France Jersey ," sports sociologist Gunter Gebauer of the Free University of Berlin said.

It is not uncommon for fans to turn their bedrooms into soccer shrines, and "the saints are their team's players, for whom they will make harrowing pilgrimages".

Dunning said sport may have replaced some of the functions once performed by religion.

"It may in part be catering for a type of need which, for increasing numbers of people, is not met elsewhere in the increasingly secular and scientific societies of our age Raphael Varane France Jersey ," he writes in his book Sport Matters.

Despite high emotions, deep hostility to rival teams and the often crushing disappointment that comes with defeat, soccer matches, overall, are unifying social events Paul Pogba France Jersey , the experts said.

Apart, that is, from outbursts of fan violence which they argue are rare given the huge numbers who watch games around the world every day.

In fact, sports like soccer developed at pace with civilization and "came to embody the elimination of some forms of physical violence and the general demand that participants should exercise stricter self-control in regard to physical contact," Dunning said.

Hooliganism is more a function of social inequality than a product of sports rivalry Patrice Evra France Jersey , said Ranc.

"When you study violence in soccer, it has to do with people who are losing ground socially ... people who are marginalized, ostracized, described as an underclass. It has a lot to do with the social climate."

Soccer allows people from different social and economic spheres to meet and bond around a common passion, experts said.

And one of the things that binds them is the sport's perceived ability to create heroes like Pele Olivier Giroud France Jersey , Portugal star Ronaldo and Argentina's Messi, from nothing.

"The stories told in sports are not pure fantasies; individuals who were previously powerless really are elevated, they really do win fame and fortune by their own strength and are thereby allowed to play a role in society that is otherwise closed off to them," said Gebauer.

But there is also the speed and skill on display, the excitement it generates N'Golo Kante France Jersey , the fact that soccer is easy to play almost anywhere, does not require specialized equipment and has relatively simple rules.

"Of course, other sports possess some of the characteristics listed here, but arguably only soccer has them all," said Dunning.


The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding has denied accusations that it abused endangered pandas and used them in a profiteering photography service.

The base found itself the target of unwanted attention after online articles made a range of accusations. At the center of inquiries is panda Menglan Moussa Sissoko France Jersey , who is said to have suffered abuse and chronic osteomyelitis without receiving timely treatment.

In a statement on Weibo, the base said the majority of panda supporters have made valuable suggestions to improve the welfare of the animals, but there are radical individuals and organizations behind the smear campaign to spread rumors.

The base said it had already apologized to panda fans who didn't receive a .
