Jordan bars Israeli fencing team from competition

Haaretz: The Israeli fencing team will not be allowed to participate in the world fencing championship to take place in Aqaba in two days, the head of the Jordanian fencing association has told his Israeli counterpart. "If the Israelis take part in the championship, Arab teams will not come to Aqaba," he said.

The Israeli Embassy in Amman has appealed to various officials in Jordan, but so far to no avail.
