Saint-Denis prefect Philippe Galli states that Stade de France, the stadium that is going to hold Euro 2016 football championship has “weak links” in its security system, - said AFP.

Security problems came to the surface after Saturday football match between Marseille and Paris Saint-Germaine F.C. (2:4) that was held at the Stade de France. During the meeting fans threw missiles and other foreign objects carried to the stadium despite the security check. There also was a crowding due to narrow exits.

“System had troubles. There are weak points that shouldn’t be there. We will have to fix them”, - said Galli.
