SAO PAULO - Fans planning to attend the Brazilian league match between Santos and Curitiba will have to wear face masks because of swine flu fears.

A state judge has ordered fans to wear the masks to avoid having to close the match to the public. Yesterday's match was to take place in Cascavel in southern Brazil, where most swine flu cases have been reported in Latin America's largest nation. Local prosecutors wanted to postpone the match, but the judge ruled otherwise. - Sapa-AP
