Organizers of the London Olympics say preparations for the games are going fine, despite a lack of security guards, traffic that's already snarled, taxi protests and rain.

Some 3,500 British troops had to be called in on short notice to fill a shortfall in security personnel after the group hired to provide them couldn't come up with enough.

Meanwhile, outside Parliament, hundreds of London cabbies ignited new traffic jams Tuesday, as they protested their exclusion from special road lanes set up across London for Olympic athletes and VIPs.
