LONDON (AP) — Britain’s Olympics Minister says the country has already prepared for attacks by “lone wolves” on the 2012 London Games but will re-examine security plans after the attacks in Norway.
At least 93 people were killed when a Norwegian with right-wing views set off a bomb in Oslo and went on a gun-rampage at a youth camp.
Olympics Minister Hugh Robertson says “we need to see what the direct cause of that is, but that will always cause anybody to look and to re-examine their own security plans.”
He added Monday: “Clearly where there are lessons to be learned from Norway we will learn them.”
Robertson says Britain has already prepared to cope with “a range of threats out there from Irish terrorism, to international terrorism to lone wolves.”
