Two suspects detained over Fenerbahce team bus attack


Turkish police have detained two people suspected of involvement in an attack on a bus that was carrying Fenerbahce players.

The driver was hit in the face and taken to hospital but no players were injured in the incident, which took place as the team were travelling to Trabzon Airport after a 5-1 win at Caykur Rizespor.

The governor of Trabzon, Abdil Celil Oz, said the two suspects – one aged 37 and the other 27 – were detained early on Tuesday. Both men have denied the charges against them.

The club said it would not play again until the incident was resolved and the Turkish Football Federation announced that league games would be suspended for one week.
