FIFA begins probe into North Korean issue

World football’s governing body this week opened an investigation and sent a letter to the North Korean football authorities.

“We sent a letter to the football federation to tell us about their election of a new President and to find out if the allegations made by the media that the coach and some players were condemned and punished are true,” said Blatter.

“We are doing this as a first step and we will see how they answer. But it is not easy,” added the Swiss, who is here for the Youth Olympic Games.
“So let’s see what we hear before we make an official statement.”
