Former Fifa officials Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini have been charged with fraud and other offenses in Switzerland.
Swiss prosecutors say Mr. Blatter unlawfully arranged a transfer of two million Swiss francs ($2.19m; £1.6m) to Mr. Platini in 2011.
Prosecutors say the payment “damaged Fifa’s assets and unlawfully enriched Platini”.

The case was opened in September 2015 and led to both men being banned from football.
The affair ended Mr. Blatter’s 17-year spell in charge of Fifa and then-Uefa president Mr. Platini’s campaign to succeed his former mentor.
Both Mr. Blatter, 85, and Mr. Platini, 66, have previously denied any wrongdoing.
