Melbourne: The Australian Commonwealth Games
Association (ACGA) on Monday said it remains committed to the next
month`s New Delhi Games despite an attack on a tourist bus in
the host city.

The shooting incident in which two Taiwanese were
injured, happened yesterday outside the historic Jama Masjid.

The attack prompted Australia`s Department of Foreign
Affairs to issue a travel warning to its citizens, saying
there was a high risk of a terror strike during the Games.

ACGA chief executive Perry Crosswhite though said they
are satisfied with the security arrangements for the October
3-14 sporting extravaganza.

"The shooting should not give rise to an increased level
of concern. At the moment, we do not see a need to change our
planning which continues to maintain a high level of security
awareness," Crosswhite was quoted as saying.

"The ACGA remains of the view that there is an acceptable
level of security being provided," he added.
