Algerian fans assault Libyan team



Libya national team players were assaulted by a group of Algeria fans at the Mohamed-V International Airport in Casablanca, Morocco on Monday while the team was awaiting a flight to the Tunisian capital Tunis.

Airport police said a group of individuals identified as Algerian football fans entered the departure hall and made towards the Libyan players, notably those they recognised to have taken part in the match incident of September 9 during the Libya-Algeria faceoff in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier played in Casablanca.

No player sustained injuries during the brawl, but a couple of them received blows and head butts from the irate fans, according to the police.

Security operatives intervened to calm the situation and the players were later escorted by the police to board their flight, eyewitnesses said.

The game was plunged into chaos after the Fennec Foxes scored a late minute goal. Olympiacos striker Rafik Djebbour was physically assaulted by four Libyan players, according to Algeria coach Halilhodzic.
