Security Concerns Force FIFA To Move Libya, Togo World Cup Clash

World soccer’s ruling body FIFA has moved Friday’s Group I tie between Libya and Togo to Tripoli after clashes between protesters and a militia killed at least 31 people on Saturday in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi where the game was initially scheduled to be held.

But the move was not enough to convince some Togo players to make the trip. Togo player Alaixys Romao has decided not to go to Libya while striker Serge Gakpe said the trip to the North African country is not worth risking his life for.
