French RAID Team Arrives in Belgrade

22 11 2010

An elite French RAID police unit arrived in Belgrade to provide protection to French tennis players during the the Davis Cup tennis final in the Serbian capital.

Police sources in Paris confirmed that the French Tennis Federation sent a formal request to the Ministry of Internal Affairs to have a French police unit perform security for their players. After a short analysis of threats French tennis players might face in Belgrade the French and Serbian governments gave the approval for the special forces to accompany the French tennis players.

The RAID team will monitor the French tennis players at both the Belgrade Arena and in the Hyatt Hotel where they will be staying.
