BOGOTA (Reuters) – A Colombian football match between Junior and Deportivo Pasto was postponed on Saturday after the visitors’ bus was attacked, leaving a player and two members of the backroom staff injured, the league said. The match in Barranquilla was suspended “because of the attack suffered by the visitor’s bus 14km from the stadium,” the league said in a statement. “The match will be played tomorrow at 9am.” The league’s Twitter page showed pictures of holes in the bus window caused by projectiles and an unidentified passenger cowering on the seat. Junior, who sit third in the league, said the match would be played behind closed doors. The Barranquilla club could go top tomorrow with three points against the side in 15th place.
