Unprecedented security operations have been mounted by France to tackle the threats of terrorism and hooliganism at Euro 2016, starting on Friday. The task of maintaining peace this time is all the more severe as this time it is a 24-team tournament, instead of the usual 16 team format. Exacerbating the problem was the arrest recently of a French citizen in Ukraine with a vast arsenal of arms and explosives, whose intent was to mount at least 15 attacks during the tournament. The other threat comes from hooligan fans who caused heavy damage during the 1998 World Cup. The authorities are however well prepared to tackle both the threats and have taken adequate precautions. Ganesha, too, feels that the cosmos indicates the tournament will go off smoothly.
