Turkish league match canceled due to fan violence

08 May 2011, Sunday / TODAYSZAMAN.COM WITH WIRES, BURSA

The Turkish football federation has canceled a league game between Beşiktaş and Bursapor due to pre-match violence between supporters that resulted in 25 policemen receiving minor injuries.
 

Governor Şehabettin Harput of the northwestern city of Bursa says nine other people have also been injured.

The clashes erupted on Saturday when police prevented Bursaspor fans from assualting Beşiktaş supporters in an apparent revenge attack following last year´s street fights in İstanbul.

No Beşiktaş fans were injured but the clashes trapped the team´s players in their hotel.

Hundreds of Bursaspor supporters, wanting to prevent opposition fans from entering the venue, began to fight with police and pelted them with stones. 

 

Television images showed riot police using pepper spray and water jets to disperse the crowds. According to broadcaster CNN Türk, some fans armed with baseball bats were still waiting outside the stadium.
