Some of the 10,000 soldiers deployed around France since last years deadly jihadist attacks in Paris will also be used to secure the matches. “Our objective is for the Euro to be a big festive gathering, but we owe the French the truth. One hundred percent precaution does not mean a zero percent risk,” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said recently. While fan zones and stadiums will be under heavy guard and surveillance, a bigger risk may exist in adjoining areas. The attacks on November 13 in Paris that killed 130 people demonstrated that hitting random “soft targets” such as bars and restaurants was just as effective in generating fear. “Nothing is simpler than organising an attack. You protect 1,000 targets, so its the 1,001st target that will be hit,” said Pascal Boniface, head of the Institute for International and Strategic Relations in Paris. “Driving past in a car and firing on pedestrians is within the capabilities of many people,” he added. In the current climate, any minor attack or even attempted attack risks ending the football competition immediately. “If there are any deaths, its simple — three-quarters of foreign teams will leave France,” said the counter-terrorism official. “And if Daesh claims an attack and promises more, everyone will leave. In any case, how could we continue to have a football party while were burying victims?” AFP KHS KHSadvertisementlast_img read more
