Reports that would they were not enough security guards have been hired for this huge event that's about to start breakout pass live in -- the way.
Obviously have a lot of concerns about these issues in London what what are the risks that they believe have surfaced here.
Well there there are risk for sure war we're ten days out to the start of the Olympic Games -- -- Because Olympic Games -- widely seen as a prime terror targets and there are concerns about safety.
At the private security company called G4S was supposed to provide over 101000 and -- for the game a few days ago but they turned around and told the government -- -- barely make 5000 and there are questions remaining about the training and even the few thousand that they are providing needless to say.
