In South Africa, US team hindered by elephants

RUSTENBURG, South Africa — The United States team bus was delayed on its way to a World Cup training session Friday by a hungry elephant snacking on a tree.
After four minutes, the elephant moved to the side of the road and the team continued on to Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
It was the second elephant interruption of the day for the US men. Earlier in the afternoon, a bus carrying 10 players on their way to an open-air market at the entrance to the team hotel got stuck behind an elephant, spokesman Michael Kammarman said.
