The organizers of the Tromsø Olympiad have released further details about a number of players from Burundi who are no longer being paired in the tournament. A total of seven members of the Burundi delegation are now absent from the event. Their women's team, which had been staying in private accommodation rather than a Tromsø hotel, has not been seen for several days, and two officials and one of the Open team players are gone as well.

Olympiad Press Chief Morgan Lillegård commented:

Seven individuals from Burundi have left the Olympiad - five players - four women and one man, plus a team captain and a team leader. We are disappointed that they have not completed the event. The police were informed yesterday (Saturday) evening about their disappearance.

All of the missing persons have Schengen visas, which give them three months freedom of movement in the Schengen area. No laws have been broken and we have not heard anything back from the police and have no reason to suspect any trouble. The matter is now in the hands of the police, and not the Olympiad organization.
