Copa Libertadores final suspended after bus attack, riots

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The second leg of the Copa Libertadores final between River Plate and Boca Juniors was suspended on Saturday after Boca players were hurt when their bus was attacked outside the stadium by River fans, officials said.

"One can't play in these conditions," Alejandro Dominguez, President of the South American Football Confederation, (CONMEBOL) told reporters.

The match was rescheduled for Sunday, kicking off at 5 pm local time (2000 GMT).

Several Boca players were injured either by glass from broken windows or from toxic gas after River fans pelted their coach with missiles as it approached the ground, local media reported.
