Olympic Security

By  | 

The chief security officer of the U.S. Olympic Committee is praising Athens' efforts to safeguard the Olympic Games.

Larry Buendorf attended a three-day conference organized by the Greek public order ministry. It brought together about 350 security experts from national Olympic committees, sponsors and broadcasters.

Buendorf says Athens will make the Olympics the safest they can possibly be.

The head of the Australian team's security also praised Athens despite a recent travel warning issued by his country. The warning followed a triple bomb attack on an Athens police station.

The May 5 blasts, which caused minor damage and no injuries, were claimed by an obscure local group.
