Tokyo's Olympic bid chief vowed Tuesday to ensure safety if the city wins the 2020 Summer Games, as the sporting world reeled from twin blasts at the Boston Marathon.
"First of all, Tokyo is one of the safest cities in the world," Masato Mizuno, chief executive officer of the city's Olympic bid committee, said. "We'll do our best to prevent any of those wrongdoings."
He also played down the possibility of random bombings at the Olympics in which more than 200 countries take part.
