Benin could face suspension after arrest warrants issued for FIFA chief

PORTO-NOVO, Benin -- FIFA has threatened Benin with another suspension from international soccer after a judge in the West African nation issued arrest warrants for a senior FIFA official and the head of Ivory Coast's federation.

The warrants demand that FIFA council member Constant Omari and Ivory Coast Football Federation president Augustin Sidy Diallo be arrested immediately and taken to a jail in the capital Potro-Novo.

FIFA told the Benin federation that if the warrants aren't withdrawn by Monday, the country could be banned.

The warrants relate to elections last month to choose a new leadership for the Benin federation. A court ordered they be stopped, but they went ahead, with Omari and Diallo present as observers from FIFA and the Confederation of African Football.

Benin was previously suspended by FIFA for a month for failing to organize the elections.
