England fans reassured about visiting for match

Israeli and English soccer fan organizations are assuring England fans they have nothing to worry about if they travel to Tel Aviv for a Euro 2008 soccer qualifier this month. In August, Israel was banned from hosting international soccer matches because of violence in the region. The country was given clearance to host games again in September, but only in Tel Aviv. English and Israeli officials told more than 100 fans at a forum Thursday night that they should not be afraid of violence or terrorism when they go to Israel for the March 24 game.
