Cyclist killed in collision with Olympics shuttle bus

• The Raw
 A man was killed Wednesday when a bicycle was involved in a collision with an Olympics shuttle bus just outside the site of the Games in London, police said.

An AFP reporter saw a man’s legs protruding from under the double decker bus on a slip road outside the Olympic Park and his mangled racing bicycle lay nearby.

A group of around 30 soldiers who had been carrying out security duties at the park ran over to the scene, where traffic soon built up causing long tailbacks.

The Metropolitan Police said they were called to the scene at 7.42pm (1842 GMT).

“The cyclist, a man believed to be approximately 30 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene at 20.14 (1914 GMT),” police said in a statement.
