Nice fans slam Paris IS attackers


NICE, France: Nice supporters voiced their disgust at the Islamic State group behind last week’s Paris terror attacks before Friday’s (Saturday in Manila) Ligue 1 match against Lyon. “Daesh, Daesh, go fuck yourselves!” fans, using an Arabic acronym for the IS group, chanted prior to kick-off as the French top flight resumed following last Friday’s attacks in the French capital which left 130 people dead and more than 350 injured. The chants, seemingly planned in advance, came after a moving rendition of France’s national anthem, ‘La Marseillaise’, and solemnly-observed minute’s silence, during which fans held aloft candles, as tributes were paid at the Allianz Riviera to the victims of last week’s attacks.
