ANKARA, Turkey – A Turkish official says police have detained two people suspected of involvement in an attack on a bus that was carrying Fenerbahce players.
The bus was shot at Saturday near the northern city of Trabzon on the team's return to the airport from a 5-1 win against Black Sea side Caykur Rizespor. The driver was hit in the face and hospitalized.
Trabzon Governor Abdil Celil Oz said the two suspects were detained early on Tuesday. He said one of them is believed to have followed the convoy while the other fired shots at the bus.
Fenerbahce had said it would not play its matches until those responsible for the attack are caught.
Soccer authorities reacted to the incident by suspending Super League and Turkish Cup matches for a week.
