Soccer: 2 injured in Brazil after mayhem sparked by bomb

Associated Press

SAO PAULO Brazilian police say fans of a losing soccer team hurled a homemade bomb into the visitors' locker room, leaving two people slightly injured.

A spokeswoman for the Senador Canedo police force says at least one player from the visiting team and a city councilman were hurt.

Police say the mayhem took place Monday night in central Brazil. Players from the Canedense and Vila Nova teams clashed at the end of the game. Fans from the home team then stormed the field and joined the melee.
