Argentine soccer match suspended after explosives thrown on field (Video)
A first-division soccer match in Argentina was suspended Wednesday after fans threw explosives on the field, creating a dangerous situation for the players.
According to the Associated Press, Belgrano was leading Independiente 1-0 when the game was suspended at the end of the first half because of the explosives. The AP reports that the explosives appeared to be launched from the Independiente fan section (the match was played at Independiente’s home stadium).
Belgrano goalkeeper Juan Carlos Olaveon saw an explosive land less than 10 feet from him. The video above shows him with his hand held to his left ear.
It would be one thing is this is an isolated incident, but this is not the first time explosives have been thrown into a soccer match.
