Soccer match in Berlin ends in brawl amid anti-Semitic insults

An amateur soccer match in Berlin descended into a mass brawl that left two people injured after fans and players from both teams exchanged anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim insults, German police said on Monday. A police spokesman said the trouble started when a fan of TuS Makkabi, a Berlin-based Jewish club, insulted a player from the rival team BFC Meteor during Sunday’s match.  The dispute ended in a tussle involving more than 20 people, forcing the referee to cancel the match.  “According to witnesses, there were insults from both sides, so there were anti-Semitic as well as anti-Muslim insults,” the spokesman said.
