Stade de France security 'failures' will be fixed before Euros: minister

Paris (AFP) –


France's interior minister promised Monday that security "failures" at the Stade de France in Paris would be put right before Euro 2016 after problems at the national Cup final at the weekend.

Bernard Cazeneuve said "the movement of spectators" would be improved and searches would be increased after police were overwhelmed by a surging crowd on Saturday as fans tried to pass through a new stadium security fence during the French Cup final between Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille.
