LONDON - A government security assessment has warned that hundreds of street parties, local festivals and big screen events across the country could be vulnerable to terrorist attack before and during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
With just 20 months left for the games to begin, security officials are concerned by what they call “displacement” in which terrorists change their plans to attack well-protected Olympic venues and aim instead at softer targets.
According to The Telegraph, a campaign is to be launched to get every event registered with local authorities by the end of March 2011 so that police can make an assessment of the risk. (ANI)
