AUTHORITIES have increased their presence at several key points in Mallorca after activating the anti-terrorist attack level four protocol.
The level four risk has been activated after the events in Tunisia, when 39 German, Belgian, British and Irish tourists were killed on the beach at two hotels, one of them, the Imperial Marhaba, owned by Mallorcan company RIU.
As well as paying close attention to movements of terrorism suspects, the protocol includes protecting the vulnerable points of the Island, including the port and airport, and increasing protection at military facilities.
The water supply system in the city is currently being closely monitored, especially the water reservoirs located along the roads of Establiments (Son Anglada) and those at the Valldemossa (Sa Font de sa Vila).
Since the attack, all Local Police officers in Palma who work in administration services have been told to carry their guns at all times. Armed officers will guard all police stations and municipal buildings 24 hours a day until the protocol is deactivated.
