A “moment of silence” before all European matches on Tuesday in memory of the victims of the Brussels attack
UEFA has announced that a moment of silence will be observed before all European matches on Tuesday in memory of the victims of Monday’s attack in Brussels, on the sidelines of Belgium-Sweden.
The details of the arrangement after the security meeting held at 10 a.m
Ahead of the France-Scotland match on Tuesday evening at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium in Villeneuve d’Ascq, a security meeting was held this morning. We now know a little more about the scale of the system.
Four companies of CRS (about 200 men) and two companies of mobile gendarmerie (about a hundred) will be mobilized, as well as the RAID which will also be on site. Their mission will be to secure everything around the enclosure but also the city center of Lille. Yesterday at the same time, only one unit was planned around this meeting.
Very big problems with traffic jams are also to be expected on the road with the filtering organized for several hours on the motorway in the direction of Belgium. 50,000 spectators are expected and nearly 1,700 Scots are present in the streets of Lille.
A meeting under close surveillance
The terrorist attack that left two dead and one wounded in Brussels on Monday night comes in a very tense security context, particularly in France. Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin announced additional measures to frame the meeting on Tuesday morning, with reinforced security.
