MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Topos Congress-Hotel in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, evacuated by police late on Tuesday, is listed by FIFA as a soccer World Cup hotel.

But no soccer teams were due to stay at the hotel during the tournament, according to a document published by FIFA.

(This version of the story corrects to say the evacuated hotel is listed by FIFA as a World Cup hotel in first paragraph.)
