Naked truth too much to bare

The Commonwealth Games organisers are angry about reports of athletes going naked in the corridors of their apartment blocks at the Games village. "We can't allow such indecency," an official of Sukom 98, the Games organisers, said. "Though we are one big happy family in the village, we can't be too open in certain things. I don't think we are being unreasonable in asking everybody to keep a modicum of modesty." The reports claimed that athletes from the Welsh team had been seen naked on several occasions. Some 6,000 athletes and officials from 70 countries are expected to be in Kuala Lumpur for the Games which open on Friday.
