New Delhi assures safe 2010 Commonwealth Games

New Delhi Commonwealth Games organizers have assured the event will be subject to tight security after a London newspaper reported there was "virtually no chance" England will send its team next year.
"Providing security and a safe and secure environment for the athletes, visiting officials and tourists for the Commonwealth Games 2010 would be top priority for the Indian Government, Delhi administration and the organizing committee of the Commonwealth Games," Suresh Kalmadi, head of the 2010 organizing committee said in a statement Wednesday.
Kalmadi's comments came hours after England's Commonwealth Games officials told The Associated Press they have received no security warnings to indicate the team must withdraw from the New Delhi event next year because its athletes could be targeted by terrorists.
