Three college students from Pennsylvania are recovering from injuries after they got caught up in a bar fight in Italy.

Officials from Swarthmore College say the students were in the wrong place at the wrong time when a group of Italian soccer fans attacked supporters of a team from England.

Officials say one of the students was hospitalized with a back injury, another student had to get stitches for a head injury, and the third suffered bruises.

The students are in Rome as part of a study-abroad program through Temple University.
