VANCOUVER - Another 33 people have been charged in the Stanley Cup Riot in Vancouver in June of 2011.

The B.C. Criminal Justice Branch says the latest accused include 23 adults and 10 young persons, and some of the newest charges were sworn as far back as last October, but are only being revealed now.

In addition, the branch has identified six more people who were charged in June of last year, but whose names were held back until now.

Most of the charges include taking part in a riot, mischief, and break and enter, while some people are also charged with assault and having their faces masked.

So far, charges have been approved against 194 people, and 133 of them have pled guilty, with 65 already having been sentenced.

Crown prosecutors are still reviewing possible charges against more than 100 other suspects.
