CAF Suspends Referee; Fines Tunisia 50,000 Dollars

The Confederation of African Football has fined Tunisia’s football federation fifty thousand dollars, while a referee has been sent home and suspended for six months in the fallout from the chaotic African Cup of Nations quarterfinal against hosts Equatorial Guinea.

Tunisia was also ordered to pay for damages to a door and a refrigerator in the team’s dressing room at Bata Stadium.

However, Africa’s top football body did not announce sanctions against players despite members of the Tunisian squad chasing the referee and aiming kicks and punches at him as he fled with a riot police escort at the end of the ill-tempered match.
