South Africa's police commissioner says seven World Cup replica trophies have been stolen from FIFA headquarters in Johannesburg. Gen. Bheki Cele said at a security briefing Tuesday "we know that there was a burglary at the FIFA offices where they took seven replicas of the World Cup."
Cole says official FIFA clothing was also taken. Cele said police were looking into the theft and suspected the people responsible were "very familiar with the environment in the FIFA offices." FIFA's headquarters is in the high-class northern Johannesburg suburb of Sandton.
