Egypt (Muslim country) beats Algeria (Muslim country) in a soccer game, so Muslims try to destroy Marseille. Can anyone explain this to me?
The Algerian team bus was attacked by stone-throwers last night as it made its way from Cairo airport to the hotel where the players are staying for Saturday’s World Cup qualifier with the Egyptian Pharaohs. Five players were injured in the attack. Despite a heavy police presence, around 200 home fans emerged from the bushes by the motorway and hurled stones towards the bus, shattering the windscreen and several windows, setting fires to cars, etc. The Algerian Minister for Foreign Affairs expressed dismay over the attack in a press release.
For some weeks now hostility between fans from the two countries has been worsening both online and in the media.
