Terror alert as Etoile, Pirates seek CAF glory

0

JOHANNESBURG: Terrorism in Tunisia has forced a kick-off time change and a limited crowd for the CAF Confederation Cup final second leg on Sunday (Monday in Manila) between Etoile Sahel and Orlando Pirates from South Africa. Twelve presidential guards were killed by a suicide bomber in Tunis this week, triggering a daily eight-hour curfew in the capital and a nationwide state of emergency. Etoile and Pirates, who drew 1-1 in Soweto last Saturday, meet at the Stade Olympique in Mediterranean resort Sousse, close to where 38 foreign tourists died in a beach massacre last June. Jihadist terror group Islamic State claimed responsibility for the Tunis and Sousse attacks.
