A stadium in Tripoli under construction
Confederation of African Football (Caf) general secretary Hicham El Amrani says Libya will remain as hosts for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, despite the ongoing troubles in the country.
The country has been gripped by political and social unrest since the the 2011 war that ousted Muammar Gaddafi and some reports had suggested Algeria could step in as hosts.
Libya was due to host the 2013 edition of the tournament but precarious security saw the event switched to South Africa, who had been down to host in 2017.
Although the country remains unstable, El Amrani told BBC Sport: "We have not received any communication from Algeria about replacing Libya and Caf's position has not changed since Libya was confirmed as hosts for the 2017 tournament.
