ROME — In a story Sept. 7 about the Italian football federation condemning fascist salutes, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Francesco Maria Talo was the Israeli ambassador to Italy. Talo is the Italian ambassador to Israel.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Italian football federation condemns fascist salutes by fans

ROME — Italian football federation President Carlo Tavecchio has “strongly condemned” a group of traveling Italy fans who gave fascist salutes before Monday’s 3-1 win against Israel in Haifa.

After a telephone call with the Italian ambassador to Israel, Francesco Maria Talo, Tavecchio adds “we hope the relevant authorities can determine as soon as possible what happened and identify those responsible.”

The incident occurred during the national anthems of the 2018 World Cup qualifier and was reported on a website of Italian Jews, Moked.
