Video: Turkey Fans Boo Moment of Silence for Paris Attacks, Then Break Out Into This Chant

A moment of silence for the victims of the Paris attacks was booed by Turkish fans Tuesday during a friendly game against Greece, Reuters reported.

Reuters reporter Ece Toksabay tweeted that the fans booed the minute of silence before breaking out into a chant of “Allah Akbar.”

Video posted online showed the disruption and seemingly captured the chant (see the two minute mark of the YouTube video below).

99.8 percent of the Turkish population is Muslim, according to the CIA World Factbook.

The disruption came at a game attended by both the Turkish and Greek prime ministers.

The terror attacks in Paris left at least 129 dead and scores more injured. It was the deadliest violence to strike France since World War II.
