BENGUELA, Angola - Cameroon officials on Saturday refused to allow accredited Egyptian journalists to cover their training.

Defending champions Egypt will face Cameroon in one of the quarterfinals of the Africa Cup of Nations today at the Ombaka Stadium in Benguela.

Egyptian journalists, who included AFP photographer Khalid Desouki, were told they could not cover the training of the Indomitable Lions because Cameroonian journalists were also turned back by Egypt when they tried to cover their training in Benguela.

Journalists from other countries were allowed in for the first half hour of the Indomitable Lions' workout. - Sapa-AFP
