Diawara and Niang robbed



Senegal internationals Souleymane Diawara of Marseille and Mamadou Niang of Al-Sadd were dispossessed of cash and valuables worth more than €400,000 (R 4.3m) in France while attending the Cannes International Film Festival last week, French paper Nice-Matin said on Thursday.

The duo, who participated in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea early this year, were robbed in their villa at La Roquette-sur-Siagne and subsequently laid complaints to the gendarmerie of Mandelieu-La Napoule district where the incident took place.

The newspaper said the two players declared as stolen a number of branded wristwatches and jewelry worth €400,000 (R 4.3m) and €30,000 (R 318,000) in cash.

Other items including luxury leather bags, shoes and belts belonging to the players and their companions were also made off with.
