    Background: The village for the Winter Olympic Games in Innsbruck is now closed to the public and stringent security measures are in force.

    The tight security is because of the recent guerilla attack on the OPEC--Oil and Petroleum Exporting Countries--headquarters in Vienna, when ten senior oil ministers were taken hostage.

    By Saturday (24 January) the Japanese, British and Canadian teams had arrived for the games which start next month.

    Security at the village is strict. Special passes are being issued, and inside the Austrian army is present in force. Special police patrol the area with dogs, and security men in plain clothes are also on guard.

    The gates are guarded by policemen with machine pistols and the perimeter fence has electronic detectors fastened to it.

    Everyone connected with the Games is issued with sealed passes with photographers, which must be warn around their necks.

    Many posters are on display. In several languages, they apologies on behalf of the police for any disturbance caused by the security measures.

    A total of 2,500 security guards will watch over the 2,000 athletes and trainers within the Olympic Village.
