    Sikh athletes and spectators will be able to wear ceremonial daggers around the London 2012 Olympic sites, organisers said Sunday. Security will be tight at all Games venues, with Britain prepared to deploy surface-to-air missiles to protect London during the event, Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said Monday, shortly after the government rejected reports of US security fears. However, Sikhs will be allowed to take in a sheathed kirpan as long as it is worn beneath their clothing and if they can prove that they are adhering to four other articles of faith, The Sunday Times said.

    NEW DELHI — The Golden Temple, a sprawling and serene complex of gleaming gold and polished marble that is the spiritual center of the Sikh religion, is one of India’s most popular tourist attractions.

Items can be worn out of view or if they are part of religious beliefs, such as the Kara, a bracelet worn by Sikh...
