Around 110 VIPs are expected, including Kings and presidents. Their safety is the responsibility of the federal government.

Snipers in snow camouflage are on rooftops and heavily armed officers patrol the streets.

There’re also high-tech solutions against drone attacks in place. Electronic jammers make sure the devices can’t be controlled.

The exact number of police in the town is not being revealed.
