High security for Israeli athletes in Turkey

ANKARA — Turkey defeated Israel in a women's volleyball game that was guarded by hundreds of police because of concerns that pro-Palestinian demonstrators would try to disrupt the event on Sunday.
The game in the Turkish capital of Ankara was closed to the public, and the stands were largely empty, saved for clusters of officials, police and athletes who were allowed to attend.
A small group of protesters gathered at a police barrier two blocks away to voice anger over Israel's flotilla raid.
The two teams were playing for the bronze in the European Volleyball League finals.
