African football chiefs Friday hit Equatorial Guinea with a $100,000 fine for unrest in a Africa Cup of Nations semifinal in which 36 fans were injured.But the Confederation of African Football said that despite disturbances blamed on Equatorial Guinea fans in Thursday's semifinal defeat to Ghana, supporters would be allowed into the country's third-place playoff against Democratic Republic of Congo Saturday.Saturday's playoff is being held at the same 15,000-seater stadium in Malabo where Equatorial Guinea's supporters pelted Ghanaian fans with plastic bottles and chairs Thursday night.Local supporters became increasingly angry at an inept showing by the home team, who struggled against a Ghana side ranked 81 places higher in the world.
