Three fans have been shot outside the Arena das Dunas World Cup stadium in Brazil’s latest outbreak of football violence.
Police said the shots were fired by two men on a motorcycle after the Rio Grande do Norte state championship match between America and Santa Cruz on Saturday night.
“We don’t have the names of the injured fans but they are in a stable condition with injuries that aren’t life threatening,” police spokesman Francisco Araujo Silva said. Local authorities appealed to witnesses to contact police in a bid to capture the gunmen.
