This handout photo released June 2, 2015 by the Boston Police Department in Boston, Massachusetts shows the knife brandished by suspect Usaama RahimA 26-year-old security guard shot dead by police and the FBI in Boston planned to behead American police officers at random to wage violent jihad, court papers said Wednesday. An alleged associate, David Wright, 25, appeared in court Wednesday charged with conspiring to obstruct a federal investigation. Court papers said Rahim, who lived in Boston, had been "planning to engage in a violent attack in the United States" since May 26 -- little over a week before his death.

FIFA President Sepp Blatter addresses a news conference at the FIFA headquarters in ZurichBy Mark Hosenball and Katharina Bart NEW YORK/ZURICH (Reuters) - The FBI's investigation of bribery and corruption at FIFA includes scrutiny of how soccer's governing body awarded World Cup hosting rights to Russia and Qatar, a U.S. law enforcement official said. Russia and Qatar have denied wrongdoing in the conduct of their bids for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments, which were not the subject of charges announced by U.S. prosecutors a week ago against FIFA officials that stunned world soccer. The U.S. law enforcement official, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said the review of the bids would be part of a probe that goes beyond the indictments.

By Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - A former executive committee member of soccer’s global governing body FIFA told a U.S. judge in November 2013 that he took bribes in connection with the 1998 and 2010 World Cups, among other major tournaments. Charles Blazer, a U.S. citizen who spent two decades as a powerful soccer official, secretly pleaded guilty to 10 criminal counts in federal court in New York as part of an agreement with U.S. prosecutors, according to a partially blacked out transcript of the hearing released on Wednesday. According to U.S. officials, Blazer’s cooperation helped build a sprawling corruption case that has led to charges against top FIFA figures and helped prompt the resignation on Tuesday of longtime president Sepp Blatter.
