Turkey: Why are Kurdish Amedspor fans barred from the stands?

When the Amedspor soccer team has an away game in Turkey, fans aren’t allowed to come with them.

The team comes from the Kurdish city Diyarbakır, where the elected mayor was deposed by the government and images of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan now line the streets.

Authorities claim the police can’t guarantee the football fans will be safe.

So why are they the ones paying the price?
