Problemer med akkreditering
Lørdag d. 22. januar 2000
Media accreditation for the Nations Cup which opens Saturday has run into hitches.
Thousands of journalists across the world were disappointed Friday following the inability of the local organizing committee in Accra to issue them accredition cards for the championship just hours away from the start.
Officials were still processing the accreditions Friday evening, leaving many journalists stranded.
Mostly hit were the foreign journalists, who arrived at the accredition venue early in the morning.
At one point, the organizers had to leave the venue to avoid the wrath of angry journalists, who had spent the whole day awaiting their accreditation cards.
The opening match of the competition kicks off Saturday between co-hosts Ghana and Cameroon.
