If you thought there was more security at Geneva Airport last week than usual then you were right. A counter terrorism drill took place last week involving a large amount of military personnel with tanks plus hundreds of police.
The procedure ended after 9 days on the 8th of October. It is important that the army and police coordinate properly in times of heightened security. These drills help ensure that correct procedure is followed in the event of an emergency.
City locations as well as areas around Lake Geneva also saw an increase in security personnel during this period. All efforts were made to minimise any disruption to the public.
