Bosnian soccer fans staged a pro-Palestinian protest that quickly turned anti-Semitic while in Vienna, Austria for a soccer match.

The incident was captured in a video posted on March 31 where the fans-turned-political-activists set up a protest in Vienna's central Stephanplatz square.

At first they stood calmly and shouted "Free Palestine" back and forth. Then, one can hear a single voice among the protestors shout out "Kill the Jews." The calls to violence swelled as the other protestors joined. In a swarm of rage, they began to jump up and down shouting "Ubij, ubij Židove," which means "Kill, kill the Jews."

The enraged protestors were in town for an international friendly soccer match between Austria and Bosnia at the Ernst Happel stadium in Vienna.

Neither Bosnian nor Austrian officials have responded to the incident so far.

Relations between Bosnia and Israel are generally friendly and the country even has a small Jewish community. In May 2014, Israel sent millions of tons of aid to the country when the region experienced record flooding that killed thousands.
