Paralympians return to Jordan, but will be back in NI for October court date

Three Jordanian paralympian squad members accused of sexual assault in Northern Ireland have pulled out of the Paralympic Games.

The Jordanian team has been training in Co. Antrim, in advance of next week's competition.

The three were detained on Monday and appeared in court in Coleraine yesterday.

According to the Associated Press, the Jordanian Paralympic Committee says the three will be flown home later, but that they will be returned to court in Northern Ireland on October 18 for their hearing.
