Eiffel Tower to have bullet-proof glass walls around it as part of Govt's anti-terror measure

Eiffel Tower to have bullet-proof glass walls around it as part of Govt's anti-terror measure The Eiffel Tower in Paris' Champ de Mars is one of the most well-known and loved tourist attractions in France. The majestic tower, built between 1887 and 1889 and thrown open to the public on March 31, 1889, is something everyone wants to see at least once in a lifetime, foreign media say.

However, thanks to its beauty and popularity, Eiffel Tower also runs the risk of a terror attack, an issue the city of Paris and France in general, have been witnessing in the last few years. In view of this, the French government has decided to boost the security of the monument and build bulletproof glass walls around it.

Work on this change started on Monday, September 18, and the project is likely to take about nine months' time and cost the country about €30 million, Paris' tourism chief Jean-Francois Martins told AFP. The Eiffel Tower already has a permanent police patrol. This includes about 7,000 troops under an anti-terrorism operation called Sentinelle, and these troops are often seen patrolling the streets in the area and guarding other tourist attractions. The troops were put to work after the infamous Charlie Hebdo attack in January 2015.

Now, the monument is set to get added security after the city councilors unanimously voted in favour of building these glass walls for safety against a "particularly high terrorist threat," foreign media report.
