An Olympic media bus was attacked on the way back to Barra Olympic park in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday as one of its windows was broken.

 
The bus was hit two times after leaving Deodoro for Barra Olympic park, southwest in the city. Police searched the bus and said it was stones, not bullets, to break the window, Xinhua news agency reported.
 
Rio organising committee has confirmed the attack and a special investigation force including the federal police was formed to review it.
 
Around 12 people were in the bus when this accident happened. Two of them suffered minor injuries. A journalist from Belarus suffered small cuts on the hand. A volunteer got injured on his arm.
 
Although police said it was stones hitting the window, passengers on the bus suspected it was small-calibre bullet.
