Sweden and Israel will play their first-round Davis Cup match in an empty arena next month because of security concerns, local authorities said Wednesday. Several anti-Israeli demonstrations are planned during the best-of-five series, which will be played March 6-8 at the 4,000-seat Baltic Hall. Malmo officials announced the decision after a vote on the issue in the city's recreational committee. The Swedish Social Democratic Party and the Left Party won the vote 5-4 after a long debate. The recreational committee said it could not guarantee security for the fans.
