(AP) LONDON - Residents of a London apartment tower went to court Monday in a bid to stop their rooftop being used as a missile base during the Olympic Games, saying the unprecedented deployment could make the building a terrorist target.

The British military plans to deploy surface-to-air missiles at six sites around London as part of a vast security operation for the July 27-Aug. 12 games.

But residents of the 17-story Fred Wigg Tower in Leytonstone, east London, say they were not consulted about the decision. The judge's decision is expected to be announced Tuesday morning.

Their lawyer, Marc Willers, told the High Court that the residents had "a fully justified fear that installation or deployment of the missile system on the roof of the Fred Wigg Tower gives rise to the additional risk that the tower itself may become the focus of a terrorist attack."

They claim the missiles breach their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects an individual's "right to private life and peaceful enjoyment of their home."

Missiles also will be stationed at another apartment building, at a reservoir and farmland in east London and along hillsides in south London.

Defense Secretary Philip Hammond has said the missiles — capable of shooting down a hijacked aircraft menacing the Olympic Park — are a prudent part of security precautions intended to provide "both reassurance and a powerful deterrent."

Hammond says objections to the security plans, which also include 7,500 soldiers, RAF fighter jets on standby at nearby air bases and a helicopter carrier on the River Thames, are confined to "a small number of activists."

Intelligence officials say there has been an expected increase in chatter among extremist groups ahead of the Olympics, but there are no specific or credible threats to the games. Britain's terror threat level remains at substantial, 춘천출장만남 the middle point on a five-point scale, meaning an attack is a strong possibility.

In a series of arrests over the last week, 14 people have been arrested on suspicion of terrorism activity. Police insist none of the cases are linked to plots against the Summer Games.

Home Secretary Theresa May on Monday insisted that London would enjoy a "safe and secure" Olympics, amid questions from opposition legislators Monday about concerns that a private security firm responsible for about 100 venues still needs to train and accredit about 9,000 guards. .

May said the government was confident over its security plans, and confirmed that London's Olympic Organizing Committee was responsible for the timetable for recruiting guards.
