FOOTBALL FANS SHOT: In London, Simon Osborn reported four football fans in Brazil "have been shot in the latest attack on supporters ahead of the 2014 World Cup." The incident happened before a "second division match in Natal, north-eastern Brazil, on Saturday." Police claimed two fans were "hit in their feet and two in their legs during a clash between America and Ceara." Two of the fans remained hospitalized, "but their lives are not thought to be at risk." The teams’ supporters also "confronted each other inside the stadium and police had to intervene with pepper spray and tear gas" (METRO, 10/27).
