NATO To The Rescue

The security threat to the Olympics, being held in Athens this year, is being taken seriously by Greece's neighbours in Bulgaria.

It is reported that Bulgaria will receive the full NATO database on fighting terror.

It will also upgrade its security on its southern border during the Olympic Games in August. They will be looking to prevent suicide bombers, and explosives crossing the border into Greece.

The Bulgarian secret services and the Interior Ministry were assigned special tasks during the Conference on Olympics Security, which was held in Athens a fortnight ago.

Bulgaria has been given profiles of the most wanted terrorists, together with instructions for recognising them.

Let us hope that they won't be needed.
