A shanty encampment for Indian laborers and their families is seen just outside Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the main venue for the Commonwealth Games, in New Delhi, India, Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010. The Commonwealth Games chief rushed to New Delhi seeking emergency talks with the prime minister over India's chaotic preparations, as two world champion competitors withdrew and England warned that problems with the athletes' village have left the sporting event on a "knife-edge."
