FIFA chief condemns terror attack in Boston
Havana: President of the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) Joseph Blatter has condemned the terror attack targeting the Boston Marathon.
Blatter, who arrived here on Tuesday on a two-day official visit, condemned the attack Monday that killed three people and injured scores.
"What happened in Boston is a tragedy. That is an attack on sports and marathons are very popular ones as well," said Blatter.
On Wednesday, Blatter visited the ‘Polar’ stadium in Havana, to kickstart the renovation of the stadium into Cuba`s first soccer synthetic field, a project for which FIFA donated USD 1.3 million.
The FIFA delegation began its Caribbean tour in the Dominican Republic and went to Haiti next. After two days in Cuba, the officials will travel to Panama, the last leg of the tour, to attend the 28th Concacaf Ordinary Congress.
