The International Olympic Committee says it is confident that the 2012 London Olympics will be secure despite the  riots that have wreaked havoc in the capital over the past three days.

The IOC is clear, though, that the responsibility lies with the British government, the Metropolitan police and other domestic agencies to ensure that the Games do pass off without any incident.
