Brazil to boost security for Olympics after Nice attack

Interim president Michel Temer held an emergency meeting with his intelligence chief and members of his cabinet late Friday night to weigh the next steps after the Nice attack, which killed at least 84 people.

As he left the meeting, intelligence chief Sergio Etchegoyen said new security measures would include extra checkpoints, barricades and traffic restrictions.

 Brazil had already planned to deploy 85,000 police and soldiers to provide security for the Olympics – running August 5-21 – double the number used in the 2012 London Games.
