Tel Aviv Attack Forces UEFA To Postpone Europa League Encounter

La Liga club Athletic Bilbao's Europa League away match at Hapoel Kiryat Shmona in Israel on Thursday has been "postponed for security reasons," according to Brian Homewood of REUTERS. In a statement UEFA said, "The UEFA emergency panel met today and decided to postpone the match... due to the tense security situation in the region. A decision concerning the rescheduling of the match will be made by the end of the week" (REUTERS, 11/21). In Madrid, Nika Cuenca reported that the decision was made after a bomb exploded on a bus in Tel Aviv. At least 10 people were hurt in the attack (AS, 11/21).
