By Daisy Nelson on Dec 30, 2009
England is seriously considering pulling out of next year’s Commonwealth Games in India over fears its athletes will be victims of a terrorist attack, a report said on Wednesday.Police and security advisers fear the England team will be targeted by Pakistani militants and feel the safety of athletes cannot currently be guaranteed, according to the Daily Telegraph, quoting unnamed sources.
It would be the first time that England has not competed in the 80-year Games, to be held in New Delhi in October.The report comes after the England badminton team pulled out of the world championships in India in August, saying security in the host city of Hyderabad was lax, and sparking criticism that they were overreacting.
