FIFA and UEFA have strongly condemned a shooting incident at the headquarters of the Turkish Football Federation during a meeting of the executive committee.
Turkish media reported that at least seven bullets were fired at the building in Istanbul on Thursday before the perpetrators fled in a waiting car. No injuries were reported.
The international football headquarters condemned the “horrific act of gun violence against the people and property of the Turkish Football Association”.
“As much as we are relieved that these actions did not result in injuries, we regret that there are still people capable of committing such crimes with no regard for human life or safety,” FIFA and UEFA said in a joint statement.
The motive for the attack is not clear. The leading Turkish football clubs in Istanbul also condemned the shooting.
