Prosecutor requests arrest of Peru soccer federation head

LIMA, Peru (AP) A Peruvian prosecutor has requested the arrest of the president of the country's soccer federation in a case that links him to two murders.

Prosecutor Juan Carrasco says Edwin Oviedo is the head of a criminal organization and ordered the killings of two sugar industry union leaders, one in 2012 and the other in 2015.

Carrasco says Oviedo is a flight risk because of alleged connections with another criminal organization made up of judges, prosecutors and business leaders.
