RIO DE JANEIRO, July 18 (Xinhua) -- Brazil will field 462 athletes at next month's Rio Olympics, its largest ever Games squad, local officials said on Monday.

The number could increase, pending wildcard entries for athletics and changes to the tennis draw, the Brazilian Olympic Committee said.

The squad includes 253 men and 209 women, in addition to 344 coaches, medical staff and team officials.

Previously the largest Brazilian squad at an Olympic Games was 277 at the Beijing 2008 Games. At the London 2012 Games, Brazil took 259 athletes.

Track and field will have the largest number of Brazilian competitors with 67, followed by football (36) and swimming (33).

Members of the host nation's squad will begin arriving at the athletes' village this Sunday (June 24).

Women's hockey is the only event in which Brazil will not field a team, due to the country's failure to meet minimum criteria for the sport.

DAR ES SALAAM Cheap Air Max 90 Online , Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Tanzania, Burundi and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) will hold tripartite talks on Thursday aimed at discussing the repatriation of Burundian refugees camped in western Tanzania, a statement said on Wednesday.

The statement by the Tanzania's Information Services said the one-day talks to be held in the east African nation's commercial capital Dar es Salaam said the talks will be chaired by the Minister for Home Affairs, Mwigulu Nchemba.

Last week, Nchemba urged UNHCR to start repatriating over 8 Cheap Air Max Online ,000 Burundian refugees who have volunteered to go back home within seven days.

Speaking at Nduta refugee camp in the east African nation's western region of Kigoma, Nchemba said the UNHCR should immediately start organizing logistics for the safe return of the refugees.

"Failure to repatriate the refugees, I will consult with the Minister for Defense to release military trucks that will ferry the refugees to Burundi," said Nchemba.

He said since the refugees volunteered to return to their tiny east African country last month, nothing was moving ahead.

On July 20 Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Shoes , President John Magufuli called on the Burundian refugees now in the country to return home voluntarily and help build their country, asserting that now there was security in the tiny central African country.

Magufuli's remarks were in support of an earlier plea by Burundian president Pierre Nkurunziza, who had called on his fellow countrymen to go back home and help rebuild their country because the "war is over."

Magufuli also took a swipe at international humanitarian bodies for trying to convince refugees not to return to their home countries because of continued insecurity, just so they can continue receiving aid from donors.

The President also directed the Ministry of Home Affairs not to grant citizenship to any more Burundian refugees coming into Tanzania.

In June this year, the UN refugee agency said Tanzania remained the largest host of Burundian refugees.

Tanzania is currently home to more than 315 Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Shoes ,000 refugees and asylum-seekers, mainly from Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are hosted in three refugee camps of Nyarugusu, Nduta, and Mtendeli, which face severe pressure.

On Sunday Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes , the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) appealed for 23.6 million U.S. dollars from now through to December this year to be able to continue meeting the food and nutritional needs of refugees in Tanzania.

The world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide said in a statement that it has been forced to reduce food rations for 320,000 refugees in Mtendeli, Nduta and Nyarugusu Camps in northwest Tanzania as a result of funding shortfalls.

WFP provides refugees, primarily from Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with five food commodities of maize meal Cheap Air Max 1 Shoes , pulses, super cereal, vegetable oil and salt.

"Due to funding shortages, all five commodities were reduced for the August distribution, reaching only 62 percent of the 2 Cheap Air Max 90 Shoes ,100 required kilocalories which is the recommended daily calorie intake," said the statement.

"Without an immediate response from donors, further ration cuts will be necessary as food stocks are simply running out," said WFP Tanzania Country Representative Michael Dunford.

MOGADISHU, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- The United States on Wednesday called on the Somali government to facilitate ways in which fighters of Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab can reject terrorism and join efforts in reconstruction of the country.

The U.S. embassy in Somalia also lauded the efforts of the government to facilitate the defections of former and current Al-Shabaab members.

"The U.S. encourages the Somali government to continue to create pathways for Al-Shabaab members to reject terrorism and join efforts to build a peaceful and prosperous country for all Somalis," the embassy said in a statement issued in Mogadishu.
