Concerns about the security of England fans in South Africa increased after three foreign journalists were robbed in their hotel at gunpoint.
Security arrangements at the four-star hotel, which is 40 miles from the England base, had been approved for foreign fans and corporate guests by Fifa, the organizers of the World Cup. The raid happened hours before a British police team arrived in Johannesburg to help to advise local officers.
The three were among 14 journalists staying in the hotel.
