The German regional league game between Türkgücü Munich and fans of FC Bayern Munich was canceled shortly after kick-off on Saturday after a police operation resulted in injuries.

The trigger for Bayern fans was a flag with a Kurdish symbol, a police spokesman said. Saturday afternoon on request. As a result, the mood among the fans changed. Then the police called for reinforcements.

What happened?

According to police, the fans did not lower the flag despite being asked, so officers used pepper spray, they said. Several people were injured as a result. How many was not initially clear. They were treated on site as outpatients.

According to the FC Bayern statement, only two minutes had been played before the referee first interrupted and then stopped the game. Twitter users accused the police of excessive harshness.

The reason the game was abandoned was that security was no longer guaranteed, as announced by the Bavarian Football Association. “The fact that the game has been abandoned cannot be in the interest of football, no form of violence has a place on our pitches,” the association said. It was initially unclear if the Kurdish symbol was an emblem of the banned PKK.

In the Turkish metropolis of Istanbul, six people died in an attack last Sunday and more than 80 were injured. The Turkish government blamed the PKK, the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party and the Kurdish YPG militia. They deny responsibility.
