Alinghi deny MP's allegation on threats

AUCKLAND: America's Cup challengers Alinghi yesterday rejected as unfounded and damaging a claim made in New Zealand's parliament that threatening letters sent to their crew members had come from within the Swiss team. 

Police said in December they were investigating two letters which made threats against the families of some of the former Team New Zealand sailors who joined Alinghi, who now lead Team New Zealand 3-0 in the current America's Cup. The fourth race, postponed five times since last Tuesday, is scheduled for today.
