Suffering of Libyan football fans ( part 2 )

Yesterday it was very important game between two biggest teams in Benghazi Al Ahly & Al Nasir derby of Benghazi ,and because the rebuilding of the 28th of March stadium ( it takes more than 5 months until now just to fix the grass ) the LFF ( Libyan Football Federation ) decide to play the match here in Tripoli Because they expect to many fans from Benghazi to support the both teams In the addition there's no other stadium near of Benghazi can handle these numbers of fans.

So many young people came from Benghazi by the cars or buses to Tripoli to support their teams; their journey takes more than 6 hours to arrive to Tripoli, after the end of the games they take the buses and cars again to go back to Benghazi but…. Infernality one of these buses which some of Al Ahly Benghazi fans was in it made an accident……. until now the news says 12 people died and there's one or two in the exceptional care.

I hope that the people who's in the head of responsible positions think about these young people and stop there suffering by building new Athletic establishment and stadiums….. Or stop the sports activities in Libya.

May ALAH have mercy on them إن شاء الله يتقبلهم الله بواسع رحمته وإن يدخلهم فسيح جناته
