Charleston Shooting Flags Abroad

FILE – This is a Tuesday, Oct. 14, 2014 file photo of Serbian soccer fans hold Serbian flags as they chant during the Euro 2016 Group I qualifying match between Serbia and Albania, at the Partizan stadium in Belgrade, Serbia. Last October, a European Championship soccer qualifying match between Serbia and Albania was suspended in Belgrade after a drone carrying an Albanian nationalist flag flew over the pitch, igniting clashes between players and fans. The banner included a map of “Greater Albania” that would comprise large chunks of neighboring states, including Serbia. A Serbian player pulled the banner down and Albanian players tried to protect it. In the resulting disorder, Serbian fans attacked Albanian players. Historic tensions between the countries were fueled by Kosovo, an ethnic Albanian-dominated region that declared independence from Serbia in 2008.(AP Photo/Darko Vojinovic, File)
