Unruly fans cost Algeria 17/02/04
Algerian fans came off second best when they clashed with the Tunisian police force after Morocco beat Algeria 3-1 in a quarterfinal clash in Sfax.

Chaos reigned supreme as the frustrated Algerian supporters started ripping out the stadium's seats and throwing bottles onto the pitch. Outside a battle took place between the hosts policemen and the supporters.

The Algerian football federation has now been fined accordingly for their fans misconduct.

They have been ordered to pay $15,000 for their supporters misdemeanor while they have to contribute $18,000 towards the repair of the stadium.

There have, however, been discrepancies with regards to the actual amount of fans who were injured.

"Some 2,500 Algerians were injured," Algeria's Youth and Sports Minister Boudjemaa Haichour said.

"One must draw conclusions to what happened because one cannot accept such acts that hurt brotherly relations between the two countries," he added.

However Tunisian news agency, TAP, contradicts the reports of their North African neighbour.

According to TAP 51 Algerian fans and 14 Tunisian fans were hurt in the clashes.
