Overseas Travel Security – Euro 2012
It’s evident that brawling has become a part of international soccer tournaments regardless of the security put in place. I really enjoy the competitive atmosphere of international play and would attend an event if the opportunity presented itself, but would I take children or my parents? Probably not.
Riots can quickly escalate at these events and unsuspecting and/or people that are not participating can quickly find themselves being targeted – journalists, volunteer stewards and innocent fans have all been victims of violence at Euro 2012.
Understanding security for overseas travelers can definitely assist with preventative medicine and keep you away from potential hotspots, but with rolling riots and brawls, extra attention definitely is required to recognize potential issues before they even happen.
