The minister explained that for the occasion “the presence of police forces around the Stade de France was doubled” compared to a normal event, with the presence of 2000 agents around the plant. “But it is true that they had great difficulty regulating the flow due to the huge influx of spectators without a regular ticket,” she admitted.
