Security Tightened at APEC Meeting in Philippines

The threats have been directed at the meetings, but Asia has heightened security following Paris attacks

Police in Manila have tightened security around seaports, airports and rail systems in the wake of the attacks in Paris. Manila is currently hosting an annual economic summit with leaders from the Asia-Pacific Economic Corporation. Police Chief Superintendent Wilben Mayor said there haven’t been any specific threats but were working to deter any potential incidents.


More than 30,000 security personnel have been deployed to cover the event.


Referring to the attack in Paris, Indonesia’s coordinating minister for political, legal and security affairs Luhut Pandjaitan said “this kind of attack, we don’t know when this is going to happen, that is why we have to stay alert.” Indonesian police say they are working with the military to increase patrols in major cities and around airports and seaports.
