UK police say they foiled planned attacks on 2012 Olympic sites, shopping centers, in riots

Assistant Commissioner Lynne Owens of London’s Metropolitan Police told lawmakers that police sent extra officers to London’s Oxford Circus, two malls and the Olympic Park on Aug. 8 after seeing messages about those areas on Twitter and the BlackBerry devices of people who had been arrested for rioting.
