UK assigns 3,500 more troops to London Olympics after security firm fails to get enough guards
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) A person briefed on the topic says Britain's government is assigning 3,500 more military personnel to guard venues at the upcoming London Olympics after a private security firm failed to deliver enough trained guards.

The person said Wednesday the extra troops were placed on standby after security contractor G4S acknowledged it could not guarantee that it could provide all the thousands of guards it was contracted to deliver.

The company and Britain's government declined to immediately comment on the report.
