A professional soccer player from Cameroon has died after fans threw rocks at players from club team JS Kabylie following their 2-1 loss on Saturday.

Albert Ebosse, who played striker for the club, was hit by one of the rocks and transported to a local hospital, but died from the injury.

''We expect exemplary sanctions to be taken against this grave act of violence,'' Issa Hayatou, the president of the African confederation, said in a statement on Sunday.
