09:28, November 23, 2011

LONDON, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- A senior British police said no to any foreign armed guards including FBI in London during the 2012 Olympics on Tuesday.

Assistant Commissioner Chris Allison insisted that armed agents from other countries besides Britain will not be permitted at the Olympic Games, moreover, the National Olympic Security Coordinator maintained that preparations of safety and security are "in a good place."

The police used the word of "rubbish" when he talked about a report that the United States was dissatisfied with security arrangements and would send up to 500 armed FBI agents to protect U.S. interests.

Allison confirmed that most countries are likely to send " security liaison officers" who will work with British police. " Some teams, they bring liaison officers with them, they're not protection officers," he added.
