With just 16 days before the Olympic Games kick off in London, there's been a major hitch in the much-hyped security plans. Thousands of extra British soliders have had to be drafted in after a private firm failed to supply promised guards. The company's been paid almost 300 million pounds - but hasn't trained enough staff. RT's Sara Firth has more.
London calls on the British armed forces to send in reinforcements for the Olympic Games. The UK military has been asked to provide some 3,500 extra troops to guard the Olympic Games. The security duties for the event have been contracted in part to the private security firm G4S. But there are fears that the company cannot provide the 13,700 guards it promised to deliver for the venue.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Yvonne Ridley, a journalist and defense analyst, to further shed light on the issue.
