Israeli club's Austria game due to security

VIENNA (AP) - A pre-season match between Maccabi Haifa and Bundesliga team Paderborn has been canceled after pro-Palestinian demonstrators stormed the pitch during the Israeli club's previous game in Austria.

Wilfried Ellinger, the deputy mayor of Kirchbichl, tells the Austria Press Agency on Friday that the match was called off because his small town wouldn't be able to guarantee security.

Maccabi and Paderborn had been scheduled to play Saturday.

On Wednesday, about 20 protesters waving Palestinian flags and signs with anti-Israeli slogans ran onto the pitch during Maccabi's friendly against French side Lille in Bischofshofen, near Salzburg. Players and protesters clashed, and the game was abandoned.
