Terror ALERT issued for Christmas and New Years as police strengthened across major events

Italy’s largest cities, including its capital, Rome, will see reinforced security measures throughout the festive period.

Turin, the city that hosted the Champions League final in June, will not allow firecrackers or fireworks to play a part in New Year celebrations.

The region was plagued with more than 1500 wounded civilians and one dead after a stampede erupted during the hugely-popular football event.

Florence will see increased security personnel on New Year’s Eve where turnstiles and metal detectors will be used in addition to crowd controlling at the Piazzale Michelangelo – an area set to see tons of Italians looking to bring in 2018.

A satellite tracking system will be implemented to monitor the number of people inside the square – crowds are limited to 15,000 for the celebrations.

Meanwhile, Milan has bolstered its security to prevent the possibility of cars ploughing into pedestrians with the city limiting entry locations.

Australia saw a white SUV drive through dozens of people outside Melbourne’s main train station on Thursday – Saeed Noori was arrested for the attempted murder of 18 citizens on Saturday morning.

Italy’s capital will see increased security around St. Peter’s Square due to the close proximity of tourist locations such as Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel.

On Christmas morning, the popular Piazza Navona site will play host to children attractions that will see bolstered protection.

Last year, Germany saw a deadly terror attack when a truck drove into a Christmas market next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin.

The shocking stunt killed 12 and injured 56 others.

Following the attack by Anis Amri, ISIS released a video of the killer pledging his allegiance to the group.
