Beijing Safe

In the wake of Monday's tragic earthquake in South eastern China, which has killed at least 10,000 people, officials are keen to point out that the Olympics will be safe.

Zhang Jian of the Beijing Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (BOCOG) said:

"What I want to say to foreign visitors is that the Olympic Games are safe, Beijing is safe, China is safe.

When constructing any building in Beijing, you have to ensure it is able to resist earthquakes of up to eight on the Richter scale so the Olympic venues will not be in danger from earthquakes
