ZURICH (REUTERS/AFP) - Fifa said on Thursday its executive committee had unanimously approved reforms to improve the global football body's governance structure.

Among the proposals are term limits for senior officials, including a maximum of 12 years for the president,plus a separation of political and management functions.

The crisis surrounding scandal-plagued Fifa deepened on Thursday when Swiss police arrested on US warrants two more Fifa officials suspected of taking bribes.
