LONDON (AP) — British media are reporting that three men linked to Jordan's Paralympic team have been arrested in Northern Ireland following allegations of indecent assault.

Jordan's squad is among several teams training in a sports center in Antrim, northwest of Belfast, ahead of the Paralympic Games that start Aug. 29 and end Sept. 9.

When asked about the BBC and Sky News reports of the arrests of the three Jordanians, Northern Irish police said three men were arrested for questioning in the Antrim area on Monday. They did not identify the men by name.

Police said Tuesday that the men were aged 23, 35 and 36 years old.

Jordan's National Paralympic Committee was not immediately available to comment.
