PARIS (AP) — France defender Jean-Clair Todibo has apologized after he was filmed laughing during a a minute’s silence in memory of the victims of the war between Israel and Hamas. The minute’s silence also paid tribute to a teacher killed in France by a suspected extremist and was held before France’s 2-1 win over the Netherlands on Friday in a European Championship qualifier. Todibo says he had a “nervous laugh” after French media reported he had been asked by the French soccer federation’s ethics body to explain himself.
