Eiffel Tower To Be Surrounded By Bulletproof Glass Wall
By Izza Sofia, 17 Feb 2017
It seems like Donald Trump is not the only leader building a wall.
The French government is constructing a bulletproof glass wall around the base of the Eiffel Tower to protect it from a terrorist attack. However, many of the French are not keen with this move as they described it as “a tasteless design that will be an eyesore”.
According to Deputy Mayor Jean-Francois Martins, the glass wall would allow full view of the tower while preventing individuals or vehicles from storming the attraction that draws 6 million visitors a year.
The Eiffel Tower is currently being surrounded by metal grids for the Euro 2016 soccer championships. The barriers were meant to be temporary, but due to the terrorism fears widespread, it has remained in place.
