Czech police to help Swiss counterparts at Euro 2008

The Czech police will be drafted in to help their Swiss colleagues at the 2008 European Football Championships, interior ministers from both countries announced on Thursday. A joint statement said that Czech police would be sent to Switzerland to help the Swiss security bodies with their work. The police forces will cooperate on matters of security before and during the tournament, co-hosted by Switzerland and Austria from June 7 – 29. The number of Czech police to be sent was not disclosed. Czech interior minister Ivan Langer agreed to a similar cooperation with Austria last November.
