JOHANNESBURG - Orlando Pirates may not travel to Tunisia this weekend to complete their two legged Caf Confederations Cup tie.

The Buccaneers are set to travel to the Stade Olympique de Sousse, the multipurpose stadium in Tunisia which serves as the home ground for their opponents Etoile du Sahel.

Tunisia's president Beji Caid Essebsi, has declared a state of emergency throughout the country and a curfew in the capital after an attack on a bus carrying his presidential guard killed at least 12 people.

Pirates have told EWN Sport the club were unaware of the presidential order and will follow up with Caf ahead of their match which is scheduled to take place at 8pm on Sunday.
