99.8 percent of the Turkish population is Muslim, according to the CIA World Factbook.

The disruption came at a game attended by both the Turkish and Greek prime ministers.

The terror attacks in Paris left at least 129 dead and scores more injured. It was the deadliest violence to strike France since World War II.
