Turkish fans were said to have whistled and shouted "Allahu akbar" (God is great) during a moment of silence for the Paris attacks during a Turkey-Greece friendly football match.
The Daily Mail reports on the issue:
Loud jeering is audible as players from both sides stood silently in the centre circle before kick-off, with reported shouts of 'Allahu Akbar' - the Islamic phrase meaning 'God is greater' - filtering through the stands.
After the match Turkey manager Fatih Terim was quoted as saying: 'Our fans should have behaved during the national anthems and during the one minute silence.
'Greece is our neighbour. Today is world neighbours day, but our fans didn't behave like neighbours in this match.'
NY Daily News also reported on the incident:
If you were under the impression the whole world stands behind Paris, think again.
Before a Turkey-Greece men's soccer friendly in Istanbul on Tuesday, some Turkish supporters booed and chanted "Allahu Akbar" - an Islamic phrase meaning "God is great" - during a scheduled moment of silence for the Paris terrorist attack victims, according to an Ankara-based Reuters correspondent.
The shouting can be heard on video, which apparently also includes the chants of "Allahu Akbar" after the two-minute mark.
A video of the incident was also linked to, but I was unable to hear anything other than the whistling and vague chanting (which did not sound like "Allahu akbar".)
Did the Turkish football fans at the match chant "Allahu akbar" in any significant unison during the moment of silence?
