Egypt deny sex link to Confed Cup robbery

A war of words has erupted between the Egyptian football team and
authorities in South Africa over the circumstances in which members of
the Egyptian team were robbed, following their Confederations Cup win
over Italy.
On Friday members of the Egyptian said they had returned to their hotel
rooms after their historic 1-0 win over Italy at Ellis Park in
Johannesburg to find thieves had made off with $2 400 (about R19 500) of
their cash.
The incident made international headlines amid persistent concerns over
high crime rates in South Africa in the run-up to the 2010 World Cup.
But two South African Sunday newspapers gave a different version of
events. The Sunday Independent and City Press quoted police sources as
alleging the players had fallen foul of light-fingered female consorts
at an impromptu victory party.
"We have reason to believe that they brought the women onto the premises
and were celebrating with them before they were robbed of their money,"
the Independent quoted a senior policeman as saying.
