LONDON (AP) - The World Anti-Doping Agency says that cycling's proposal to offer amnesty to riders and officials who confess to drug offenses is taking sport into "unchartered territory."

WADA director general David Howman tells The Associated Press that such pardons aren't included in WADA's rules

However, he says he'll wait to see more details of the suggestion put forward by UCI President Pat McQuaid and has no "qualms" about looking into the idea.

WADA and the UCI are still waiting to receive the evidence that led the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to erase Lance Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles.
