Stringent security for Clasico

Security measures being prepared for Barcelona’s La Liga clash with rivals Real Madrid on December 18 will guarantee the match in the Catalan city is not disrupted in any way by a pro-independence protest on the same day, police said yesterday.

About 3,000 public and private security officers will be dispatched inside and outside Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium to protect both teams, fans and match officials for the game, known as “El Clasico”, Catalan regional police head Eduard Sallent told reporters.

The match was originally scheduled for Oct. 26 but it was postponed at the request of the league’s organising over security concerns following demonstrations in Catalonia after the jailing of nine Catalan separatist leaders.
