TUNIS, March 6 (Reuters) - League football will resume in
Tunisia next weekend after being suspended for almost two months
because of the popular revolt that toppled the country's
president in January.
A statement from the youth and sports ministry said all
sports activities will resume on March 13, the TAP news agency
All sports will be preceded by one minute's silence in
memory of those killed during the demonstrations that led to the
sudden departure into exile of Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in
mid-January plus the subsequent unrest as the country seeks to
appoint a new government and restore stability.
The resumption comes just one week before Tunisian champions
Esperance and last season's runners-up Club Africain play in the
second round of this year's African Champions League.
The last full round of Tunisian Ligue 1 matches was played
on the weekend of December 25-26.
On Friday, Club Africain completed their twice-postponed
Champions League first round, second leg match against APR FC of
Rwanda with a 4-0 win in front of a restricted crowd in Tunis.
It was originally due to be played behind close doors but
the authorities changed their decision days before the match.
