Work has begun on a bulletproof wall of glass along the base of the Eiffel Tower. The measure is part of a multi-million euro effort to improve security at the Paris tourist attraction amid the country’s ongoing state of emergency.

After a spate of terrorist attacks in France in recent years, including co-ordinated Islamist gun and suicide bomb attacks at the center of Paris in November 2015 and the Nice truck attack last year, France is currently in a state of emergency.

In August, French police apprehended a man trying to push past an Eiffel Tower security checkpoint while brandishing a knife.
