FBI Looking at Russia, Qatar World Cups

Reuters reports the FBI is investigating how FIFA awarded World Cup host duties to Russia and Qatar, respectively, citing law-enforcement officials. Swiss investigators also say they are investigating the bids. As The Daily Beast’s Michael Daly reported, FIFA executives—many accused of taking bribes—voted to give both countries the World Cup on the same day in 2010, even though the 2022 cup was a full 12 years away.
