Libya match moved due to unrest

Libya have been forced to move their 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Comoros from Tripoli because of the country's political turmoil.

The country are leading their group, which includes Mozambique and Zambia, but have been hit hard by political protests that have resulted in a civil war. Now the Confederation of African Football (CAF) says it's seeking a neutral country to host the match having already decided that Libya was unsafe to host the eight-nation African Under-20 Championship last week.

"If the security is not guaranteed 100% the matches will be played in a neutral venue or eventually postponed," CAF said in statement.

CAF says a new venue and rescheduled match dates in April-May will be announced for the Under-20 competition next week, while Algeria's federation says it and South Africa have offered to host the event.
