CAF ban Kabylie over Ebosse death

Algerian club JS Kabylie have been barred from African competitions for two years over the fatal assault on Cameroonian footballer Albert Ebosse.

The decision was taken by African football body CAF during a meeting in Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.

Kabylie finished runners-up in the Algerian title race last season, entitling them to compete in the 2015 CAF Champions League.

CAF acted after Algerian football authorities ordered Kabylie to stage home fixtures behind closed doors at neutral venues this season.

Ebosse died in hospital last month from head injuries having being struck by a piece of slate allegedly thrown by a Kabylie supporter upset at a defeat.
