Belgrade: Serbia expressed "outrage" on Saturday after a Red Star Belgrade basketball fan was stabbed to death in Istanbul.

Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic voiced "outrage over the monstrous murder," a government statement said.

Serbia demanded that the perpetrator be urgently "found, arrested and most severely punished."

Turkey's prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu called Vucic to voice condolences over the death during a fight between Turkish and Serbian fans on Friday.
