Turkey’s chief negotiator for EU membership under an egg attack

October 19, 2010 | 23:08

After participating in a conference, held at the University of Ankara, Turkey’s chief negotiator for EU membership Egemen Bağış was the victim of an egg attack, organized by university students.

As the Turkish NTV reports, at a time when Bağış was accompanied out of the building by bodyguards, a group of students - members of the Communist Party - began shouting slogans against the wearing of headscarf and threw eggs at the Minister.

Stunned bodyguards did not have time to open umbrellas, and one of the eggs hit the Minister in his head.

And Rijkaard leaves

Turkey´s Galatasaray parts ways with coach, approaches former coach; yet fails again.

And Rijkaard leaves

Galatasaray says it has ended its contract with coach Frank Rijkaard.

In a statement posted on its official website on Wednesday, Galatasaray also says it terminated trainer Johan Neeskens´ contract.

Galatasaray made a disappointing start to the season and fans have been calling for Rijkaard´s resignation.

The decision to part ways with Rijkaard follows a 2-1 defeat to Karabükspor last week, and a 4-2 loss to Ankaragücü this week in the Turkish Superleague.

Followingly Galatasaray approached its former coach Fatih Terim for the position, but Terim rejected the offer for “family reasons.”

Rijkaard coached Barcelona before moving to Galatasaray.

Iverson, Beşiktaş to have official deal Friday

Allen Iverson, one of the NBA´s most prolific scorers, is set to sign for Turkey´s Besiktaş on a two-year contract worth an annual $2 million, Turkish media reported on Monday.

Iverson played 10 seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers between 1996-2006, winning the league MVP award in 2001, before rejoining the team in 2009.

In March 2010 he announced he would miss the remainder of the season for personal reasons.

"Iverson wants to come and play for Besiktaş," club board member Şeref Yalçın told state-run Anatolia news agency.

"I will go to the United States on Friday and talk to him face to face... I think we´ll have an official deal after this meeting," he added. Besiktaş Basketball club was unavailable for comment.

Turkey hosted this year´s basketball World Championships and lost to the United States in the final 81-64.

Erdogan’s demand makes newlyweds blush

 

 

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was a witness at the wedding party of member of Istanbul Provincial Parliament Filiz Altun and Sukru Murat Akaycan.

Before handing the marriage certificate to the couple, Turkish Premier stressed men do not keep the certificate properly and gave it to the bride.

Erdogan advised the newlywed to have at least 3 children. “For years, some forces have been trying to dry up roots of Turkish people and making every effort to make Turkish nation old. Taking into account birth-rate growth, age of 60% of Turkish population will be under 65 by 2037. This is the reason I advise my brothers to be consistent with the matter. I repeat this at every weeding party,” Recep Edogan noted.

I thought there was ban for smoking cigarettes in closed areas. Today I went to the cafe I usually go and there were people smoking cigarettes and even nargiles inside. I immediately left and I checked 2 more cafes nearby to find a place where nobody smokes. I couldn´t find any.

 

I don´t think I will go there again.

 I can definitely sympathize, si++!  I went to Turkey a few months ago and people where still smoking inside of many restaurants (more so in the smaller cities.  I didn´t encounter this in Istanbul at all).  I wouldn´t be so concerned but I had my children with me and one is just a baby.  It will take some time before people get used to the idea of not smoking in public areas.  It isn´t something that happens overnight.  I could absolutely see an improvement from my past visits however!
