Indian laborers walk on the roof of the weightlifting venue near Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the main venue for the Commonwealth Games, following an incident with the interior ceiling 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." Indian officials insisted that facilities would be ready and immaculate for the Oct. 3 games opening despite wide-ranging concerns about unfinished buildings construction collapses and an outbreak of dengue fever.
