Police detain fans planning to throw grenade at bus full of rival supporters

Brazil police arrested two fans who planned to throw a grenade at a bus full of rival supporters following a Brazilian league match over the weekend.

The two Palmeiras fans were detained at a federal highway police checkpoint Sunday night following the team's 3-1 loss to Cruzeiro in Sao Paulo, the federal highway police said in a statement.

The fans were carrying an American-made grenade and confessed they were going to throw it at the bus transporting Cruzeiro fans back to the team's hometown of Belo Horizonte, about 550 kilometers (340 miles) northeast of Sao Paulo, police said.

The Palmeiras fans - 22-year-old Jefferson Ferreira Lima and 26-year-old Jorge Luiz Sampaio Santos - had been following the bus since it left Palmeiras' Palestra Italia stadium in Sao Paulo, police said.
