Libya to play World Cup qualifier in Tunisia

JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- Libya's match against Cameroon for World Cup qualifying will be played in the neutral Tunisian city of Sfax and no fans will be allowed to attend.

The world soccer governing body says the Group I game will be held on June 10. It will be Libya's second match in World Cup qualifying to try to reach the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Soccer was thrown into disarray in Libya following the civil war that erupted in early 2011 and led to the killing of leader Moammar Gadhafi.

Libya's national team had to play home qualifiers for this year's African Cup of Nations in Mali and Egypt and won games to qualify for the continental championship.
