Nagano Cancels Torch-Related Event


A cancellation over security concerns:

An event the city of Nagano had planned to host on April 26 following the Olympic torch relay has been canceled, a city official said Tuesday.

The event, which was scheduled to be held in front of Minami Nagano Sports Park shortly after the Nagano run is completed, is the first event related to the Nagano leg of the relay to be cancelled.

It was axed out of concern following the disruptions during the Olympic torch relay legs in London, Paris and San Francisco caused by demonstrators protesting against China’s recent crackdown in Tibet and about other human rights issues, said an official of the city’s education board which had planned the event.

The event was cancelled “in order to concentrate on management of the torch relay,” the official said.
