Paris to Build Barrier Around Eiffel Tower to Counter Terrorism
“Paris plans to build a barrier around the Eiffel Tower to limit the risk of terrorism.
The city is setting aside 20 million euros ($21.3 million) for the project and will evaluate proposals with consideration for their aesthetics.
The idea is to have a ‘permanent and aesthetic barrier,’ said Jean-Francois Martins, a city official. ‘Sadly the risk of terrorism hasn’t gone away,’ he said.”
