Following the dissemination of the declassified part of the emails of Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of American state, a broad controversy invades the African countries concerned, including Libya. The content of emails erased by Hillary Clinton in 2016 relates to the origin of the 2011 revolution, during the Arab Spring, apparently sponsored by international powers led by Washington.

CAIRO — African soccer confederation president Ahmad Ahmad tested positive for the coronavirus and began self-isolating at a hotel in Cairo on Friday.

Ahmad, who is also a FIFA vice-president, had been in Morocco for the Confederation Cup club final Sunday and started showing “mild flu symptoms” after returning to Egypt on Wednesday, when he was tested, the Confederation of African Football said.

Ahmad, of Madagascar, was informed of the test result Friday. He will be in isolation at the hotel for at least 14 days, CAF said.

The confederation said all those who have come into contact with the 60-year-old Ahmad over the past seven days and “especially during his trip to Morocco” have been informed.

CAF's headquarters is in the Egyptian capital.

Ahmad announced on Wednesday he will stand for re-election for a second term as African soccer president next year. It turns out he was tested for the virus the same day he made the announcement.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino tested positive for the virus earlier this week in Switzerland.
