Macca gets more protection than George Bush!September 25th, 2008 - 6:32 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 25 (ANI): Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney has been given greater protection than US President George W Bush during his Tel Aviv concert, following the threats from Islamic fanatics.
The 66-year-old singer would be guarded by 5,000-strong security team during the controversial concert.
No one is taking anything for granted, the Mirror quoted a security source, as saying.
The level of security is unlike anything weve seen. Everything is being done to ensure that this passes peacefully and without incident, the source added.
The security team will include 20 agents from Israels elite Mossad intelligence organisation as well as officers from Britains MI6.
However, the bulk will be made up of Israeli police officers who will throw a cordon around the Tel Aviv park where 70,000 fans will watch the singer perform.
Maccas team have hired three floors of Tel Avivs five star Dan Hotel.
Twenty-one suites have been taken up at a cost of 70,000 pounds to ensure no one gets near Macca, who is staying in the Royal Suite with partner Nancy Shevell.
Only security and a handful of Maccas entourage will be near him. Everything is tailored to ensure he is 100 per cent safe, the source said. (ANI)
