Music festivals on 'high alert' for terror attacks, say police
Open air music events are seen as particularly hard to secure Music festivals this summer will be on “high alert” for terror attacks along with large sporting events, according to a senior Metropolitan Police officer.
Neil Besu, deputy assistant commissioner with the Metropolitan police said that crowded entertainment events such as music festivals would be “right at the top of the agenda” for the police.
Mr Basu said Isis suicide bombers were considered by police to pose a “principle threat” to public security in the UK.
“The threat has become more difficult, because it’s now potentially any time any place, anywhere,” Mr Basu told The Sunday Times.
“These people are perfectly happy to target civilians with the maximum terror impact. Crowded places were always a concern for us, but now they are right at the top of the agenda.”
Although there is no specific intelligence to suggest that terrorist groups will attack a music festival, Mr Basu told the newspaper that these sorts of events were particularly vulnerable.
Open air festivals, he said, are harder to safeguard than concert venues: “They tend to have one big stage with high perimeter security. It’s kind of the equivalent [to a stadium] but even harder to control because the perimeters are much larger.
”Around 135,000 people will attend the Glastonbury festival this year, an event that covers 900 acres of land. Adrian Coombs, the security director for the festival said: “The Glastonbury festival thoroughly plans the event each year, where necessary with the support of the police, and puts in place all essential measures to protect the public and maximise public safety.” Independent Read More >>>>>>
Syrian Refugee Blows Himself Up at German Music Festival, Wounding 12
A Syrian refugee blew himself up and wounded 12 people near a music festival in Ansbach, Germany, on Sunday night.
Three of the victims suffered grave injuries.
The authorities identified the man behind the blast as a 27-year-old Syrian refugee who was denied asylum last year.
He had attempted suicide twice before, and officials had not yet identified a motive for the detonation as of early Monday.
“We still don’t know whether the offender only wanted to commit suicide or whether it was his intention to kill other people as well,” Joachim Herrmann, the Bavarian interior minister, said at a news conference.
Though the suspect was denied asylum, he was allowed to stay in refugee housing because of the dangerous situation in Syria.
The police said they had been alerted to the detonation just after 10 p.m.
The explosive device, they said, was packed with “small metal parts” that were found around the location of the blast, near the front entrance of a music festival.
The man set off the explosion after being refused entry to the festival, an open-air concert with about 2,500 visitors, officials said.“It is only thanks to fortunate circumstances that not more people were killed,” Mr. Herrmann said.
“We now have to do everything that such violence in our country, by people who had entered it as asylum seekers, does not spread further.” New York Times Read More>>>>>>>Plenty of vantage points in which to choose from:
The attack does not necessarily need to up close. But consider the lack of funds and time to plan. Most Muslim terror attacks are up close and personal. Not only bombs, but guns and especially knives.
Should be close to 100,000 souls attending Lollapalooza each day.
