Turkey Refuses to play Israeli National Anthem at World Youth Chess Championship

Chessbase.com reports on the refusal by Turkish chess federation to play the National anthem of Israel for the winner of the U-14 section of the World Youth Chess championship held in Antalya.

Of especial interest is the Girls Under 14 group. On the one hand it was won by an old friend, WFM Marsel Efroimski, whom we encountered in our report on Israel Schoolmates and Champions. There was a protest launched when the Israeli National Anthem was not played at the closing ceremony (see below). The other was a the bronze medal by Saranya, the under-privileged Indian talent we read about in report last month. Note too that Peru took two gold medals, thanks to the Cori siblings Deysi (Girls U16) and Jorge (Under 14).
