Activist disrupts Blatter’s opening address

A pro-Palestinian activist briefly disrupted the FIFA congress after President Sepp Blatter’s opening address. An activist held up a red card and shouted “Red card to racism” to draw attention to a campaign that aims to stop Palestinian players being detained by Israeli security forces. Blatter was introducing the day’s business agenda and called for security to take the demonstrator from the hall.
