Mass desertion has hit the Cameroon team representing the Central African country at the ongoing 2018 Commonwealth Games, in Gold Coast, Australia.

Patrick Ogwel, the team manager and assistant secretary at the National Council of Sports told Xinhua that two weightlifters did not return to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games village on Wednesday.

Those 14 athletes left the Games village during the event but later turned themselves in to immigration officials.

The Queensland Commonwealth Games minister, Kate Jones, said the Australian federal police were "keeping a watching brief on these athletes".

Migration agents on the Gold Coast, where the games are taking place, have reported receiving phone calls from athletes to inquire about how they can stay in Australia once the games concluded.

The president went as far to say the two of them were the same person and calling the agency a "den of thieves and lowlifes". The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee responded to the release of the report by attacking Republicans.

"If you overstay, the authorities will catch up with you and you will be detained and then deported", said the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). Six of the athletes had already competed but two had not.

Cr Dobie said there was no indication they were unhappy and "they were great ambassadors for their country, there was no indication at any time that there was an issue with individuals".

In a statement, Nso confirmed the eight athletes, all of whom attended a pre-Games in Warwick, had left in "three waves" during the Games.

Cameroon still has athletes scheduled to compete in track and field, wrestling and boxing before Sunday's closing ceremony.

Although the Australian Border Force has been informed, the athletes are not yet in breach of their visa conditions. In London during the Olympics, Cameroonian athletes left the competition without authorisation.

China denies Xi comments aimed at settling trade dispute with US
China's trade surplus with the United States grew 13 percent year on year to 1.87 trillion yuan last year, data showed. Trump predicted, hailing the speech in which Xi renewed a commitment to lower vehicle import tariffs.

"If they are thinking of doing anything other, I would encourage them not to do it". "They are still within their visas, they have the right to travel freely", Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive David Grevemberg said.

Two Ugandans and potentially one Ghanaian are also missing in action.

Ugandan athletes were also warned against vanishing during Gold Coast 2018 in the lead-up to the event.

They were reportedly seen working at a vehicle wash in Cumbernauld, a town 14 miles to the north-east of Glasgow, but were later found living at a hostel for asylum seekers in Cardiff.
