according to the pics I saw on the telly a few moments ago, he had been hit just above the forehead and blood was running down his face. I sure hell wouldn't want to be a ref in such an atmosphere. One can only hope that UEFA will dictate the the rest of Roma's home games should be played on neutral field or without any spectators.
What happened was, that when the players were making their way onto the pitch after the half-time break, Philippe Mexes pushed Anders Frisk, who promtly showed him the red card, which wasn't pleasing for Romas tifosis who then bombarded him. The fact that Roma was down 1-0 sure didn't help either.
