England duo pulls out over security

ENGLAND has withdrawn two players from this week's India Open badminton tournament due to security concerns.

Organizing secretary Punnaiah Choudhary told the Indian Express that Carl Baxter and Rajiv Ouseph, seeded 11 and 12, had pulled out of the March 24-29 event in Hyderabad. "They were advised by the Foreign Office to withdraw," Choudhary said. Security fears in the Indian subcontinent have increased following an attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team bus in Lahore, Pakistan, earlier this month. World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia will head the field.
