UEFA has found Paris Saint-Germain guilty of insulting disabled fans of Chelsea during a Champions League match in April, the European governing body of soccer announced Tuesday.

UEFA ordered the closure of sectors 104 and 105 of PSG's stadium, the Parc des Princes, for the next European competition match that the French club hosts.

One of the disabled fans told the BBC in May that disabled fans were spat on and had objects thrown at them by PSG supporters. Typically, away fans are clustered together at European matches, but the abused disabled Chelsea supporters were surrounded by PSG fans.
