emergency visit comes amid widespread anger

NEW DELHI (AP) -- Commonwealth Games Federation chief Mike Fennell is rushing to New Delhi on an emergency visit amid widespread anger over India's frenzied last-minute preparations for the event which is due to open a week from Sunday.

Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive Mike Hooper told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Fennell would arrive Thursday and had requested a meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Fennell's arrival comes as organizers struggle to cope with unfinished buildings, a filthy athletes' village, a bridge collapse near the main stadium and numerous other problems.
