Missiles May Be Put on London Flats

Seven hundred people in a London residential building on Saturday received leaflets informing them that the government may be considering placing a surface-to-air missile system on their water tower as the city ramps up security for the Olympic Games. A Ministry of Defence spokesman said a final decision has not yet been made to install missile systems in the city, but one resident of the complex claims to have seen soldiers in the building carrying a crate. The leaflet also informed residents of two planned multiday military exercises intended to test military preparedness for the Games.
