American AR pelted with rubbish

Fans pelted a match official with rubbish, forcing an early abandonment of the international friendly match Estonia El Salvador, played on Wednesday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, with the European team awarded a 2-0 win. Referee Ricardo Salazar (USA, photo) suspended the match in the 89th minute when the heavily Salvadorian crowd of nearly 15,000 people began to pelt one of his assistant referees with trash. Salvadorian fans were protesting an earlier decision and began throwing objects at the assistant referee.
