Ticket purchasers have applied for refunds on about 200,000 of the roughly 970,000 tickets sold in Japan for the postponed Tokyo Paralympics, organizers announced Wednesday.

The refund applications, accepted from Dec. 1 to Dec. 21, were for about 21 percent of the total sold for the event, which will now take place in 2021 from Aug. 24 to Sept. 5 after a one-year delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
