Military helps police with Obama's security
Stockholm Police are getting a hand from the Swedish military as they cordon off the capital and maintain security for US President Barack Obama's visit, Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports.
Mobile radar units for air defense have been deployed in several locations throughout in central Stockholm and military aircraft will be patrolling the skies. Obama arrives tomorrow with a large US delegation, and their visit promises the closure of multiple roads, railways, bus routes and flight paths.
"The Armed Forces are here and supporting the police with radar," Corporal Nivelius from the Life Guards in Kungsängen said.
According to Corporal Nivelius the radars can detect aircraft and helicopters as well as cruise missiles, grenades and rockets.
