    FIFA corruption: new round of arrests of South American football officials

    The indicted include the president of South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL), Juan Angel Napout from Paraguay.

    Sixteen more top football officials were charged in a dramatic widening of the FIFA corruption scandal on Thursday, as US prosecutors vowed to leave no stone unturned in their quest to root out graft. Several senior FIFA officials from the past or present were named in a 92-count US Justice Department indictment which came after a series of dawn raids at a luxury hotel in Zurich hosting FIFA officials.
