The Courier Mail a local newspaper in Australia reports on its front page Lead Story: ” ON THE CAMERUN: OUT OF AFRICA-Hunt For Rogue Athletes, team sent home“. The tabloid further gave a report of how all athletes have been sent home due to the ugly incident, but further speculations suggests its not true.
