Istanbul soccer match called off over unspecified threat

BY foxsports • March 20, 2016

ISTANBUL (AP) Turkish authorities have postponed a soccer match between two major Istanbul teams, citing an unspecified threat.

The Istanbul governor's office said Sunday's Galatasaray-Fenerbahce derby was canceled following ''the assessment of serious intelligence.''

The decision came a day after an Islamic State group-linked suicide bomber killed himself and four foreign tourists on Istanbul's main pedestrian street.
