Darmanen told LCI. Said on the TV channel, “We examined 180 thousand people, we did not allow 800 people (to participate in the Games – Ed.), 15 of whom are on the list of people posing a threat to national security. We Also checked 200 thousand employees of private security companies who will protect the stadiums, fan zones… 102 people (who were posing a threat to national security, were not given entry – Ed.),”

Darmanan said that among those excluded were Islamists and radical environmental activists who “clearly had bad intentions.”

“Against the backdrop of terrorist threats French intelligence services have recommended changing the format of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games to be held on the River Seine in Paris.” Radio station Europe 1 reported.
