Brazilian football fan killed by flying toilet bowl

A football fan in Brazil has been killed after he was struck on the head by a toilet bowl hurled from a stadium in the World Cup host city of Recife.

The man died on Friday night after a large fight erupted following a match between Santa Cruz and Parana at the Arruda Stadium, across town from a brand new World Cup venue.

A police officer at the scene said fans inside the stadium ripped out three toilets from a lavatory and threw them from the stands at rivals on the streets below.

He said one hit and instantly killed the fan. Brazil's Tribunal for Sporting Justice has opened an investigation and ruled the stadium be closed pending its outcome.
