Eiffel Tower’s $35 million anti-terror security system nears completion

A security upgrade for France’s iconic Eiffel Tower is scheduled for completion in mid-July. The system includes a 12-foot fence of bulletproof glass and metal strong enough to stop a heavy truck on a suicide mission. The glass is designed to ensure security without inhibiting views. In addition to the fence, a series of barriers will prevent vehicle access from a number of other approaches. The threat level in France has remained at high alert since the the 2015 Paris attacks that killed more than 240 people.
