Theft, but no break-in, at FIFA World Cup headquarters
FIFA, the governing body of international football, said Wednesday there had been no break-in at its World Cup headquarters in Johannesburg, where a theft was discovered a few days earlier, DPA reported.
Seven World Cup trophy replicas were stolen from a storeroom. Worth 210 euros (about 258 dollars) apiece, such replicas are normally used as gifts.
FIFA spokesman Nicholas Maingot said there were no signs of a break-in and that an investigation was continuing.
Police believe the theft was committed by people familiar with the FIFA office.
