MONTEVIDEO, March 14 (Reuters) - The Uruguayan championship remained indefinitely suspended on Tuesday after the death of a fan who was beaten and stabbed at a bus stop following a match on Saturday.
Thirty-five-year-old Hector da Cunha, a supporter of Cerro, was attacked at by a gang of supporters from rivals Penarol near Montevideo's Centenario stadium.
Da Cunha, who was with his wife and 12-year-old child, died after being beaten and stabbed by the gang, who took his Cerro hat as a trophy.
The rest of the weekend's programme was suspended.
The Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) said in a statement on Tuesday that it had not yet re-arranged any of Sunday's postponed games.
AUF president Eugenio Figueredo told local newspapers that the tournament would only re-start when it was safe to do so.
'We've stopped until we can play in an atmosphere of calm and maximum security,' he said.
The crime, the first death related to football hooliganism for 10 years in Uruguay, has shocked the small South American nation.
