Istanbul cancels derby on security fears – CNN Turk

A soccer derby between Turkish sides Fenerbahce andGalatasaray scheduled for Sunday evening was postponed and fans evacuated after the Istanbul Governor’s office said “serious intelligence was obtained” about a potential security threat, CNN Turk TV said.

The cancellation of the match, which was scheduled to start at 1800 GMT, came a day after a suicide bomber killed himself and four other people, and wounded dozens more, in an attack on Istanbul’s most popular shopping district.
