Clash leads to suspension of SagesseRiyadi basketball game 48 seconds before its end
A sports game between Sagesse and Riyadi teams within the Lebanese Basketball Championship was suspended on Sunday only 48 seconds before its end, in wake of a huge clash that broke out on the "Saeb Salam" Stadium in Beirut, after scores reached 109-98 in favor of Riyadi team.
The game was then resumed after emptying the Stadium from both teams' fans. However, chaos soon returned to the game field. As a result, Sagesse team players withdrew from the game; thus, the Riyadi team's victory was announced by 0-20.
