Myanmar has cancelled Davis Cup matches in Yangon this coming weekend due to security concerns, AFP reports.
There was a recent outbreak of religious violence against Muslims in that country that left at least 44 people dead.
Lay Naing, secretary of the Myanmar Tennis Federation, told AFP that matches in Asia-Oceania groups III and IV set for this week were cancelled after the ITF voiced security concerns because of what happened in Meiktila, the city where the violence took place.
Players from Muslim nations including Bahrain, Iraq and Saudi Arabia were scheduled to compete. The ITF has yet to decide on another site.
