LONDON (AP) — Parts of the the athletes' village at the London Olympics are without water after delays installing pipes.

The cafe in the village's shopping area was closed for several hours yesterday and other grab-and-go cafes were also affected.

With the cafe doors closed unexpectedly, staff told athletes and guests trying to gain access that there were "water restrictions".

Organisers told The Associated Press that a "couple of water pipes and connections" were slightly late being installed and are still being checked before being operational.

Organizers expect the issue to be resolved by today. There were no indications that athletes' apartments were affected.
