Egypt's Football Association has called off the weekend's premier league games amid continuing street protests against the government of President Hosni Mubarak.

REUTERS - Egypt's next round of premier league matches have been postponed, the country's Football Association (EFA) said on Thursday as a wave of anti-government protests ran into a third day.

The EFA did not give any reason for the decision after announcing on its website that the games scheduled for Friday and Saturday had been cancelled.

The statement said the matches would be rescheduled for a later date.
