CAIRO —

Libya's 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Comoros has been moved from Tripoli because of the country's political turmoil.

The Confederation of African Football says it's seeking a neutral country to host the match. It was scheduled between March 25-27 in Tripoli's June 11 stadium.

After two matches, Libya leads the group, which includes Mozambique and Zambia.

Last week, CAF decided Libya was unsafe to host the eight-nation African Under-20 Championship scheduled March 18-April 1 in Tripoli and Benghazi.

CAF says a new venue and rescheduled match dates in April-May will be announced next week.

Algeria's federation says it and South Africa have offered to host the event, a qualifier for the Under-20 World Cup.
