South African Police Unveil World Cup Security Plan

South African police have unveiled a wide ranging security project for the 2010 World Cup. The plan includes air sweeps by fighter jets, joint border patrols with neighbouring countries, police escorts for cruise ships and team security guards with "diplomat" training.

Police Lieutenant General Andre Pruis told Parliament's portfolio committee on police that the police had been working closely with foreign intelligence agencies through the newly established Intelligence Co-ordinating Committee (ICC) and arere prepared for any threat.

He says: "The ICC operates in co-operation with intelligence services from all over the world and provides tactical intelligence, that is flowing on a minute by minute basis".

"Every bit of tactical intelligence is collected and liaised with intelligence personnel so that action can be taken."
