Italy: Milan bolsters security with concrete barriers in Cathedral Square

Security measures were tightened in central Milan, Monday, with concrete barriers being installed in Cathedral Square and at both entrances of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping centre. Besides the presence of the blocks, some of them decorated with murals, scores of police officers patrolled the tourist hotspot. The move follows last week's attacks in Barcelona and in Cambrils, and... Еще is part of a new large-scale security plan that the municipality of Milan is carrying out along with the city's Prefecture to protect sensitive and crowded places. The local administration is currently evaluating whether to install further barriers in the Navigli (docks) area. The attacks in Spain were claimed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS, ISIL), which has recently said Italy is a possible target for attack.
