A decade-long ban on international soccer matches being played in Libya has been lifted, the country’s soccer federation said on Thursday.

The decision comes less than a month after the Confederation of African Football (CAF) sent a delegation to inspect facilities and the security situation in the north African country, beset by civil strife over the last decade.

"I have good news today, especially for football fans and all Libyans, which is the lifting of the complete ban on all our stadiums, especially the ban in terms of security," said Libyan Football Federation president Abdulhakim Al-Shalmani in a video message on Twitter.
