Tunisian terror outrage leads to raised security

Cordon Press

The terrorist outrage centred around a Mallorca-owned hotel in Tunisia has led to extra security at key points around the island.
The authorities have raised the terror alert to level four – one below the maximum – after the tragic events in Tunisia last week in which 39 people died. The victims were mainly British, but German, Belgian and Irish tourists were also killed on the beach at two hotels, one of them the Imperial Marhaba in Sousse, owned by Mallorcan company RIU.
As well as paying close attention to the movements of terror suspects, the protocol includes protecting vulnerable points on the island, including the port and airport, and increasing protection at military installations.
The water supply system is being closely monitored, especially the reservoirs located along the Establiments (Son Anglada) and Valldemossa (Sa Font de sa Vila) roads.
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.
