Indonesia Suspended by International Olympics for Boycotting Israel

Indonesia was today suspended from membership in the International Olympics Committee for refusing, last year, to permit the participation of Israel and Ceylon in the Asia Olympics games.

The motion for suspension of Indonesia was made by the Indian delegation. The suspension, ordered by a subcommittee of the international organization meeting here, is, however, subject to review by the entire committee when it meets next summer at Nairobi, Kenya.
