Video: Turkey vs Greece Fans Chant During Minute’s Silence For Victims of Paris Attacks

Turkey host Greece in an international friendly tonight in Istanbul, with the world of football looking to recover after the shocking events which took place in Paris on Friday night.

However, it appears that the minute’s silence was broken before the game, when a group of supporters could be heard chanting in the stands.

132 people lost their lives during the terrorist attacks in the French capital on Friday, when France’s Stade de France home was targeted along with a music venue and several bars and restaurants.

Yet supporters at Turkey’s Atatürk Olympic Stadium seemed unwilling to pay their respects to those who had died as this clip shows:

Matina Stevis, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, claimed that a colleague had confirmed that it was the Turkish fans who interrupted the silence.

Stevis also told her 49,000 followers that these supporters chanted “Allahu Akbar”, which translated from Arabic means “God is great”:

 

Last night, Bosnia fans disrupted another minutes silence before their play-off match with the Republic of Ireland for a place at EURO 2016.

A small group of Bosnian’s could be heard chanting and booing at the Aviva Stadium, before being booed by the Irish fans.

Turkey are currently being held to a 0-0 stalemate by Greece.
