Iran suspended by judo federation over ban on Israelis

Iran was suspended on Thursday by judo’s world governing body as punishment for refusing to let its athletes face opponents from Israel, The Associated Press reported.

The International Judo Federation imposed the four-year ban on Iran after the Court of Arbitration for Sport ordered a disciplinary review last month which said a previous indefinite ban was not allowed.
