South America to host Dakar Rally

PARIS — Argentina and Chile will host the 2009 edition of the Dakar Rally, which
was cancelled this year because of fears of terrorism in Africa.
On December 24, a family of French tourists was killed in Mauritania. The incident has been linked to al-Qaeda. Eight of the competition's 15 stages were to be held there.
