African Youth Championships moved from Libya

CAIRO - Football's African Youth Championships is being moved from Libya due to the unrest in the country, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said on Friday.

The eight-nation tournament, which serves as Africa's qualifiers for four places at the Under-20 World Cup in Colombia later in the year, was due to be played in Tripoli and Benghazi from March 18 to April 1.

"Due to security concerns and the current unstable political situation in Libya, the competition has been postponed to a later date and a location to be confirmed by CAF in the next few days," a statement from the Cairo-based organisation said.
