Algerian league suspended
The Algerian Football Federation (FAF) has postponed next weekend's league fixtures following the death of Albert Ebosse.
The 24-year-old striker died after being struck on the head by an object thrown from the stands after JS Kabylie's 2-1 home defeat to USM Alger, in which he scored his side's only goal.
The FAF has now confirmed the temporary suspension of domestic competition, while the remainder of the Cameroonian's salary is set to be paid to his family.
A statement read: "All the matches of the championships of professional and amateur leagues ... scheduled across the country for the weekend of August 29 and 30 are suspended and postponed until a later date. This is in homage to Albert Ebosse, who tragically died, and also to protest the irresponsible actions of some fanatics and hooligans that perpetuate violence in stadiums and has reached unacceptable proportions.
"FAF, the federal office and members of the general assembly will study soon other more coercive measures that may disqualify the offending club from all competitions."
