ISTANBUL - A soccer derby between Turkish sides Fenerbahce and Galatasaray in Istanbul was cancelled and the stadium evacuated hours before the match was due to start on Sunday evening after the local governor's office said "serious intelligence was obtained".
His office gave no further details.
The match was postponed "due to the assessment of serious intelligence obtained and in line with demand and consensus of the football clubs", the governor's office said.
On Saturday a suicide bomber killed four people and wounded dozens more in central Istanbul in the fourth such attack this year that has brought the death toll to more than 80 people.
