Colombian soccer team eyed for possible drug link

Colombian authorities are investigating whether a top soccer

team is being used for money laundering by drug cartels and

organized crime.

A spokesman for Colombia’s attorney general said Thursday that

judicial officials are examining the books of Independiente Santa

Fe. Six investigators are combing through club records dating to

2002.

Santa Fe has reached the round of 16 of the Copa Sudamericana,

South America’s No. 2 club tournament.
