Olympic prep – Brazil still behind

British security specialists said to criticize the Federal government’s slow progress on preparations for the Olympics

The Brits did praise the state of Rio de Janeiro for “more efficient” security planning. This week, it’s the United States’ turn: apparently the FBI will be in town to train Rio’s military police.
