London to spend $960 million on Olympics security due to IRA and Islamists threat

Britain’s Olympics Minister says security plans for the 2012 London Games will be reevaluated after the Norway attacks this past weekend.

Although the country has prepared for “lone wolves” attacks, the recent killing of 76 people in Norway calls for a stricter plan.

“Where there are lessons to be learned from Norway we will learn them,” said Olympics Minister Hugh Robertson.

He said that whatever the cause of the incident was, security plans should still be heightened and re-examined so that an attack of such gravity does not happen again. 

Robertson said the country is ready to deal with "a range of threats out there from Irish terrorism, to international terrorism, to lone wolves," reported Fox News.

A right-wing Norwegian set off a bomb in the city of Oslo and then went on a shooting rampage at a youth camp, killing 68 people. Anders Behring Breivik is now in custody as a suspect in the killings.
