Uefa Launches Inquiry into three incidents

One unfortunatley is an incident that allegedley occured in Zenica:

There is also two others, one in Skopje and the other in Milan.

UEFA is to instigate disciplinary proceedings after incidents at UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifiers held in Italy and Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.

Date to be set
The investigation will look into reports of crowd disturbances at Italy's match with Wales in Milan and claims of racist behaviour from fans towards a Norwegian player in Bosnia-Herzegovina's fixture in Zenica. UEFA's control and disciplinary body will look into the matters on a date yet to be set prior to the final qualifying matches on 11 October.
In Skopje

UEFA is to instigate disciplinary proceedings against the Macedonian Football Union following reports of racist abuse directed by Macedonian supporters at England players during the UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifying match between F.Y.R. Macedonia and England in Skopje on Saturday.

Delegate's report
UEFA said it had decided to instigate disciplinary proceedings even before it received an official complaint from the Football Association, as the racist abuse had been reported by the UEFA match delegate.

Further evidence
"We will be looking at further evidence including players' statements and video recordings," said UEFA communications and public affairs director Mike Lee. The case will be dealt with on a date later than 11 September, when the next meeting of UEFA's control and disciplinary body takes place.

I dont believe this story about fans saying racist things but what could happen if in fact its true ?

Bosnians hate blacks? Yeah, for sure.

We have a black guy, American-born Terrel Castle, playing on our basketball team and he just became our citizen about 2-3 years ago.
