The LGBTQ rights group ADHEOS is seeking to block a sportscaster and former Tunisian official from traveling in Europe because of his violently homophobic comments on a Qatari sports channel during the World Cup. ADHEOS said that Tarek Dhiab, a former Tunisian soccer/football star and Tunisian Minister of Youth and Sports, called for the extermination of Germans because of their support for LGBT people. After Dhiab made the remarks on the air of the Qatari sports TV channel BeIn Sports, urged suspension of his visa to travel in the 26-nation Schengen area of Europe where border controls have been eliminated.
