After the attack in Vienna, the German police checked the German-Austrian border with increased vigilance. „Our forces are sensitized accordingly,“ said a spokesman in Potsdam today. The control of the border is now a „tactical focus“. The border guards paid close attention to whether there were any abnormalities „from the relevant spectrum“.

After the terrorist attack in Vienna, Italy also tightened security controls at the border crossings with Austria, starting with the Brenner on the border between Tyrol and South Tyrol. The military of the Italian army is also involved in the controls, as the media reported today.

The Italian Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese has convened the National Security Council. At the meeting scheduled for today, the public order situation after the recent attacks in Nice and Vienna will be examined. It is expected that security measures will be tightened across Italy, reported Italian media.
