A special investigations committee probing a recent sumo match-fixing
scandal canceled its scheduled meeting Tuesday due to travel disruption
brought about by Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami.

The committee was expected to report its findings and propose punishments
for those involved in the bout-rigging scheme Friday but a member of the
committee said there could be further delays.

''If new findings come to light then further meetings would have to be
held,'' he said.

Meanwhile, the men's Japan Basketball League said it was taking the
unprecedented move of canceling the rest of the season due to the quake.

There were 24 games plus the playoffs remaining but the league said it made
the call as it could not guarantee the safety of venues and also cited the
planned power outages in the country.
