  • Five athletes from Cameroon go MISSING from the Commonwealth Games after failing to show up for their events

Among them are Sierra Leone men's doubles squash players Ernest Jombla and Yusif Mansaray, who failed to show for matches including one yesterday against India.

"I will also have a range of meetings whilst at the Games, including with the Australian Minister of Sport, Senator Hon Bridget McKenzie".

Ghana's press attache Kenneth Odeng Adade has told insidethegames that he did not know of any Ghanaian athlete to have disappeared.

It had initially been suggested that five of the 24-strong Cameroonian team had gone missing.

An Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority investigator also found a syringe in Mr Babu's bag.

The missing athletes were last seen at different times on Monday and Tuesday, according to Molombe.

Grevemberg said they had not now breached any visa rules.

Meanwhile, the Australian government has warned athletes against overstaying their visas.

"However, visitors are expected to abide the conditions of their visa and there are penalties for those who do the wrong thing".


Games officials say the athletes have not yet officially breached their visas, which do not expire until May 15.

"They have taken action against two athletes, which we do not agree with at all. and we will appeal against the decision", they said.

"The compliance officers will be out there, I promise, tracking these people down and they'll be deported as quickly as possible", he told Macquarie Radio.

Commonwealth Games Federation CEO David Grevemberg confirmed in a statement that Australian authorities are now searching for "one Rwandan and two Ugandan accredited delegates not present in the village".

Cameroon team manager Victor Agbor Nso told the country's state broadcaster it was unfortunate for the country and its worldwide image.

"The safety and welfare of those athletes from the Team Cameroon perspective is being taken very, very seriously, but we are obviously monitoring that situation with Team Cameroon".

Five more African athletes have gone missing from the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, taking the total of unaccounted for competitors to 13.

It is the second time the Indian group has been in rupture of the arrangement on the Gold Coast in the wake of boxing group specialist Amol Patil was issued a solidly composed censure a week ago after needles were found in a plastic jug.
