Police blow up bag left near Rio's soccer stadium

Police blow up bag left near Rio
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - A Brazilian bomb squad has blown up a bag deemed suspicious that was left near a metro station entrance close to the stadium where the World Cup game between Germany and France was underway.

Associated Press journalists saw the events while authorities closed the metro station as a precaution.

Police declined immediate comment Friday but said they would issue a statement later.

Few people were near the metro station when the bomb squad acted because tens of thousands of fans were inside Rio's Maracana stadium watching the game.

Some surrounding roads were also closed while the bomb squad investigated. The incident lasted about 20 minutes.

The metro was reopened after the bag was detonated and before Germany beat France 1-0.
