(AP) The IOC says it has suspended India's national Olympic committee because of government interference in its election process.


After months of warnings, the IOC executive board imposed the sanction Tuesday when the Indian Olympic Association failed to comply with the world body's demands for holding independent elections.


The decision, first reported by The Associated Press, was announced at an IOC news conference after the executive board's first day of a two-day meeting.


Suspension means the Indian body will stop receiving IOC funding and its officials will be banned from attending Olympic meetings and events. India's athletes will be barred from competing in Olympic events under their national flag, although the IOC could allow them to do so under the Olympic flag.
