CROWD CONTROL: The WALL STREET JOURNAL's Cassell Bryan-Low reports U.K. authorities are "reviewing security plans for next summer's Olympic Games, including staffing levels and intelligence gathering, in the wake of recent riots." Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Chris Allison will be the "principal coordinator police officer for national security" during the '12 Olympics. He said that "authorities are studying the recent riots that rocked London and other U.K. cities to see whether they should deploy additional police resources." Allison: "We need to see if there are any lessons we need to learn for the Games." He added that "no changes have been made so far." Bryan-Low notes police "survived a key post-riots test this weekend as London's Notting Hill carnival passed with relatively little disruption, despite fears that it could be a target for trouble makers" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 8/31).
