Six more athletes have decided not to go home after the Olympics.
Three Guineans and three Ivorians have vanished on the day they were due to go home. It brings the total number of athletes and delegates who are missing or have claimed asylum to 21.
An official on Guinea’s Olympic Committee told Reuters on condition of anonymity that swimmer Dede Camara, judo competitor Facinet Keita, on the left in picture, and runner Aicha Toure had been missing since Saturday, the day before the closing ceremony.
Yesterday officials in the Ivory Coast said three athletes, two swimmers and a wrestling coach, had failed to return to the Olympic village.
