The Confederation of Africa Football, CAF has responded to robbery attacks on Algeria journalists who went to cover the 2021 AFCON in Douala, Cameroon.

CAF says they’re working with the Cameroon local government authorities to give details and investigate the incident that happened two days ago.

The Algerian journalists who suffered a knife attack in Douala on the opening day of the Africa Cup of Nations want to carry on their coverage in Cameroon.

Mehdi Dahak, who owns an Algerian football website, says one colleague needed hospital treatment after suffering two “deep wounds” while he was cut in the face.

The incident on Sunday, in which money, three phones and a passport were stolen, took place just seconds after the three men left their hotel in the Bonapriso area of Cameroon’s largest city.

Police have opened an investigation, while the Algerian ambassador in Cameroon has called a press conference.
