World gym body suspends 11 nations for unpaid fees

The International Gymnastics Federation has suspended 11 countries for failing to pay money owed to the sport's ruling body.
The governing body says the 11 are Cyprus, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Macau, Macedonia, Paraguay, Seychelles, Syria, Tajikistan, and Yemen.
FIG rules bar the countries from organizing or competing in international events, and contacting other national federations.
The world governing body says the 11 can be reinstated "once their dues have been settled."
A total of 14 countries are now suspended from world gymnastics, including North Korea which falsified a gymnast's age.
