Brazilian police make 3 arrests in kidnapping of sister of Brazil striker Hulk; she's released

Brazilian police say three people have been arrested for their alleged participation in the kidnapping of the sister of Brazil striker Hulk.

Angelica Aparecida Vieira was released unhurt on Tuesday, a day after being abducted in front of the restaurant where she worked as a nutritionist. Police say on Wednesday that her boss was among those taken into custody, and a candidate for the local city council is being sought in connection with the crime.

Police say the 22-year-old Vieira was released after some of the suspected kidnappers got into a disagreement about the ransom amount. One decided to let her go.
