Colombia team robbed by SAfrica hotel workers

Colombia team robbed by SAfrica hotel workers

Police say two hotel workers stole money from members of Colombia's football team, which is in South Africa for a friendly against the World Cup host.
Police spokesman Eugene Opperman said Friday the Colombian players' rooms were cleaned while they were training on Tuesday, and when they returned they discovered an undisclosed amount of cash had been taken.
Opperman says two employees appeared in court Thursday on theft charges. A third, who had also been arrested, was later released.
The incident occurred at the same northern Johannesburg hotel where Slovenia will be based during the World Cup.
South Africa beat Colombia 2-1 Thursday in its first game at Soccer City, the main World Cup stadium.
