Diouf ban increased
Senegal's El Hadji Diouf
Diouf gets a warning from referee Ali Bujsaim
Senegal striker El Hadji Diouf has had his ban from international football increased to four matches.

Diouf was originally suspended for three games following his side's stormy quarter-final defeat to Tunisia at the Cup of Nations, in which Diouf had a running feud with referee Ali Bujsaim.

The Liverpool striker had to be restrained at the end of the game.

Technical staff members Amara Traore, Abdoulaye Sarr and Doctor Fallou Cisse were also banned from the touchline for a year - Sarr's ban has now been increased to 18 months.

"These measures have been taken due to Senegal launching an appeal instead of asking for clemency," said Amadou Diakite, a member of the CAF executive committee.

The suspensions come into effect from the start of the 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign which gets underway in June.
