(AP) -- Alfredo Hawit of Honduras has been appointed acting president of CONCACAF and American Ted Howard has been made acting general secretary.

The announcement was made Thursday by the executive committee of soccer's governing body for North and Central America and the Caribbean, one day after CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb was arrested in Switzerland and indicted in the United States on charges of racketeering, money laundering and wire fraud.

Webb, who is from the Cayman Islands, was elected CONCACAF president in May 2012. CONCACAF said Webb and Eduardo Li, the president of Costa Rican soccer's governing body, had been "provisionally dismissed." Li, who had been elected to fill one of CONCACAF's seats on FIFA's executive committee, also was indicted and arrested.
