Croatia snub media over nude photos

SALVADOR, Brazil -- Angered by published photos showing them bathing nude at their training complex's swimming pool, Croatian players are refusing to speak to World Cup reporters.

''They are determined that they will not speak to the media,'' Croatia coach Niko Kovac said. ''I don't know if this will last until tomorrow, or until we are at the World Cup.''

The pictures from paparazzi photographers were published by Croatian media.

''I can't force them to change their minds after what you have done to them and their families,'' Kovac said.

A news conference scheduled for Monday at the Croatian camp near Salvador was cancelled.
