Olympic Security

A security guard walks towards the Olympic Stadium in the London 2012 Olympic Park at Stratford in London July 13, 2012. Britain's air force will be on standby to shoot down any rogue aircraft over London from Saturday under tight new restrictions being enforced two weeks ahead of the Olympic Games. Security surrounding the Olympics has made the headlines this week after Britain was forced to deploy 3,500 extra troops to fill an embarrassing last-minute shortfall in private security staff.REUTERS/Luke MacGregor
