Deadly Festivities

ISTANBUL () -- A soccer fan was shot dead and another knifed in violent celebrations after Fenerbahce took the Turkish soccer league title, newspapers said on Monday.


16-year-old Trabzonspor fan Mumin Aydin was shot in the mouth and then run over by a car. Hurriyet newspaper also reported a Fenerbahce supporter Niyazi Kalyoncu had been knifed in the leg in a fight with Trabzonspor fans.


In a turbulent season, two Trabzonspor supporters hanged themselves two weeks ago after their team lost to Fenerbahce and slipped into second place. Suspected supporters of a rival club knifed a Fenerbahce fan last week as he celebrated his team's almost certain title triumph.
