Turmoil In Istanbul Clouds Turkey's Chances Of Landing 2020 Olympics Bid
Published June 17, 2013
'VOICE OF TOLERANCE': The AP reported as officials in Turkey "lashed out at protesters," leaders of Istanbul's 2020 bid "sought to diminish the impact of the unrest in a presentation Saturday to a key audience of Olympic officials from around the world." Istanbul officials said the "voice of tolerance" will prevail in the wake of the anti-government demonstrations that "have roiled Turkey for two weeks and raised questions about the country's readiness to host the Olympics." The Istanbul bid team addressed the crisis directly in a presentation to a conference of more than 200 national Olympic committees Saturday (AP, 6/15).
