23,000

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Cy­clists at this year’s Tour de France will be un­der the watch of 23,000 po­lice, in­clud­ing SWAT-like in­ter­ven­tion squads, as the French gov­ern­ment tries to en­sure se­cu­rity amid ex­trem­ist threats. France has been in a state of emer­gency since at­tacks on Paris in Novem­ber killed 130 peo­ple. The emer­gency mea­sures were extended last week to cover the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships next month and the Tour de France, which runs from July 2-24.
