The Confederation of African Football has revealed the seeding for
the draw for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
Ivory Coast are among the top seeds, despite the abandonment of
their second-leg tie with Senegal and no news of an official result
The Ivorians were 6-2 up on aggregate when Saturday's game in
Dakar was called off because of crowd violence.
Tournament hosts South Africa are also among the top seeds,
along with reigning champions Zambia and Ghana.
Cape Verde, who qualified for the first time in their history by
pulling off a shock 3-2 aggregate victory over four-time
champions Cameroon, are in the fourth pot.
Also among the lowest-ranked teams are 1962 champions
Ethiopia, who have qualified for the first time since 1982.
The tournament takes place in South Africa between 19 January
and 10 February 2013.

draw will be held on 24 October in Durban.
