FEARS of terror attacks over New Year’s Eve celebrations have forced officials to ramp up security measures as Europe remains on “high alert.”France is set to deploy 90,000 cops across the country amid a “very high terrorist threat” due to the ongoing conflict in Gaza. New Year’s Eve celebrations in Paris will centre on the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, including DJ sets, fireworks and video projections on the Arc de Triomphe. German authorities barred sightseeing visits to Cologne’s landmark cathedral on Christmas Eve and worshippers faced security checks amid growing fears of a potential attack. Police said they were taking precautions even though the information they had was for an attack on New Year’s Eve. Earlier in December the home affairs chief warned Europe is facing a “huge risk” of terrorist attacks over the Christmas period amid the bloody war in Gaza.
