PETALING JAYA: The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has stripped Malaysia of the right to host the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships, which were due to be held in Kuching between July 29 and Aug 4.

The decision was made by the IPC governing board at its meeting in London, England on Sunday (Jan 27), after the Home Ministry said it would not allow Israeli para swimmers to enter the country and participate in the event.
