Fans of a Bosnian soccer team chanted anti-Semitic slogans in the ’centre of Vienna prior to a match with the Bosnia-Herzegovina team.

Some 50 fans wearing team colours were seen in a video on YouTube among several dozen pro-Palestinian demonstrators at a central city plaza during a protest last week.

The fans chanted “Kill, kill the Jews”.
