Bulgaria: Sports fans attack Israeli team during game

Via Jerusalem Post:
Ashdod SC players said they feared for their lives after being forced to run for cover from local fans in Bulgaria during Monday's so-called friendly match against CSKA Sofia.
Ashdod's players and coaches were lucky to escape with bruises, with coach Eyal Lachman being hit in the face by a glass bottle.

"From the start of the match they began throwing bottles at us and were singing anti-Semitic songs against Israel," said Ashdod striker Michael Ohana. "We prayed that we would be able to leave the stadium safely. You don't think about it when it happens, but there is no doubt that our lives were in real danger at that moment."
