FOGGIA, Italy (AP) _ A fourth-division Italian soccer game was suspended with five minutes remaining Sunday after homemade bomb exploded on the field.

The game between Foggia and Tricase, two teams from the southeast region of Puglia, was first delayed when several fans ran on the field and tried to attack the Foggia goalkeeper midway through the second half.

With Foggia down 1-0 in the Serie C2 game, the referee suspended game when the bomb exploded.

Violence continued outside the stadium, while both teams remained inside the locker rooms.
