The unprecedented corruption scandal engulfing FIFA widened today with the arrests of two more top officials in another dramatic dawn raid at a luxury hotel in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Swiss justice ministry said the two officials targeted were South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) president Juan Angel Napout, and Alfredo Hawit, head of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF).

They were taken from the Baur au Lac hotel, in Zurich, where several Fifa officials were also arrested in May.

Both are suspected of taking millions of dollars in bribes in return for selling marketing rights for major regional tournaments in Latin America and World Cup qualifying matches.
