HONG KONG - The 2012 Olympic Games will go ahead in London despite security concerns after last week’s terror attacks, International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge said Monday.
“We’ll keep the games in London. There’s absolutely no reason to reconsider that,” Rogge said at a news conference in Hong Kong.
London won the 2012 Games on Wednesday, but a day later at least 49 people were killed by bombings on a bus and subway trains in London.
“We trust the London organizers to secure the best possible security arrangements in 2012,” Rogge said. “No city in the world can claim that nothing will happen in each city.”
