Many potential attacks on the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi have already been thwarted, according to Indian officials who are promising foolproof security.

The weekend bombings outside the stadium at an Indian Premier League cricket match in Bangalore which injured at least 10 people have revived international jitters about the safety of those attending the October Games.

But the joint director of the Organising Committee T.S. Darbari has tried to reassure athletes and challenged suggestions that visiting family and supporters could be at risk when outside the sporting venues.
