FIFA President Sepp Blatter celebrates after being re-elected following a vote to decide on the FIFA presidency in Zurich on May 29, 2015Newly re-elected FIFA president Sepp Blatter said Saturday he was "shocked" at the way the US judiciary has targeted football's world body and slammed what he called a "hate" campaign by Europe's football leaders.

The battle with his opponents went into a new round on Saturday as the FIFA executive committee met to discuss how many places each continent gets at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
