A Ugandan official says seven Eritrean football players have disappeared at the end of a regional tournament.

The players are the latest to defect from Eritrea, which has been described by human rights groups as one of the most tightly controlled regimes in the world.

Four members of Eritrea's under-20 football team sought asylum in Uganda in October.

Many young people fleeing the East African nation oppose its system of indefinite national service and forced military conscription.
