Prosecutors charge 6 over match-fixing

German prosecutors say they have charged six individuals with

fraud over a betting scheme that allegedly netted ?2.8 million

($3.7 million) and involved European football players and

referees.

Bochum prosecutors said in a statement Friday that two of the

suspects paid out about ?550,000 worth of bribes to manipulate 26

friendlies and other matches in European competitions. They did not

release the suspects’ names.
