#Olympic : UK Fears 'Dirty Bomb ' Attack OR UK And The States Preparing A 'Dirty Bomb' Attack So They May Invade Iran ?

London, November 29: Britain's Home Office has made an appeal for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to draw up contingency plans to deal with a deadly radioactive or “dirty bomb” attack during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

As the British government fears a possible radioactive attack at one of the venues outside heavily protected London during the 2012 Olympic Games, a rapid reaction force of 1,000 personnel has been ordered to be on stand-by in order to deal with a “mass casualty incident,” revealed the Sunday Mirror on 27 November.

The 1,000-strong contingency force-which is drawn from the Army, Navy, and the Royal Air Force-is in addition to the 8,000 soldiers who will help Scotland Yard police the Olympic Games.

“The Home Office has requested that the MoD provide a contingency force of 1,000 personnel to assist the emergency services to resolve unforeseen safety and security incidents,” read a note sent to commanders involved in the MoD's Op Olympic.

“It is identifying additional defence support that might be required in such circumstances, for example radiological detection at non-London venues,” added the Op Olympic papers.

The British government's contingency plans come as London's safety was seriously questioned after unprecedented unrest swept across the country in August.

China was the first country raising concerns over London's safety as a report on China's state-run Xinhua news agency said "the image of London has been severely damaged, leaving the people skeptical and worried about the public security situation during the London Olympics."

Furthermore, the US officials suggested that they would bring one thousand security agents, including 500 FBI agents, to the Olympic Games in order to protect their athletes and diplomats.
