Global athletes are urged to follow their visa guidelines amid reports that five athletes from Cameroon have disappeared from the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Village.

Three athletes left the village on the night of April 8, two others were declared missing on April 9, and three more had left their rooms on the night of April 10.

Meanwhile, Clémentine Noumbissi has brought a gleam of hope to Cameroon at the Games after the 27-year-old athlete won bronze in the women's 90kgs weightlifting.

Her coach, husband and the Indian shooting team's manager Raunak Pandit was by her side as she spoke and when asked what went into maintaining consistency at the highest level, Sidhu turned to her better half for answers.

"These athletes, three weightlifters and five boxers, were part of the team that had a training camp in Warwick before getting to Gold Coast", said a press release from Team Cameroon.

Top government ethics official demands EPA investigate Pruitt's spending, housing controversies
On Saturday, President Donald Trump tweeted about Pruitt, saying, "Rent was about market rate, travel expenses OK". The OGE does not have authority to take action with respect to any possible violation, according to CNN .

Federation chief executive David Grevemberg said that the Cameroonian athletes are within their visas and "have the right to travel freely".

One who failed to appear was Ulrich Rodrigue Yombo who skipped Wednesday morning's weigh-in for his quarter-final bout in the 81kg division against Canada's Harley O'Reilly.

Cameroon chef de mission Victor Agbo Nso said team officials had notified Australian police.

Out of those who went missing, six competed without winning medals, while two absconded while they were still due to compete.

"The authorities are very disappointed with the deserters - some did not even compete".

The U.S. threatened military action but later backed down. "He has challenged Assad in the past not to use chemical weapons". Macron and Trump had again reiterated their desire for a "strong reaction" from the global community, Macron's office said.

The athletes have not breached any visa rules yet, as their visas do not expire until May 15, but the matter has been reported to Australian police.

At London 2012, seven Cameroon athletes disappeared during the Olympics.

Australian Border Force and the Ministry of Sports and the president of the National Olympic Committee of Cameroon have been informed.

In years gone by, England have been forced to accept their place in the pecking order behind their Antipodean rivals, with Australia and New Zealand battling out every Commonwealth Games final since netball joined in 1986.

"Until it becomes a real issue in terms of visas and so forth, we would obviously need to take that very seriously".

Mueller probing $150000 payment to Trump from Ukrainian tycoon
In exchange for that payment, Trump made an appearance at a conference about Ukrainian politics. There have been few indicators that Mueller was excited by investigating the fee, although.

Cameroon officials on Wednesday made a decision to fly 14 athletes, including the entire 12-man basketball team, home immediately after they had completed their competitions.
