Iroquois lacrosse players blocked from traveling to a tournament in England because they refuse to use U.S. or Canadian passports are spending another day in limbo while hoping for a diplomatic breakthrough.
The 23 members of the Iroquois Nationals team have already missed their first scheduled game of the World Lacrosse Championships. The United Kingdom has refused to recognize passports issued by the Iroquois confederacy.
The 23 members are all eligible for U.S. or Canadian passports but say accepting them would be a strike against their identity.
Team manager Ansley Jemison said Friday that negotiations were continuing with British authorities. Jemison said squad still hoped to be able to leave on a flight early Friday evening.
