Balkans: February 20, 2004


Greece announced that it will deploy Greek Army troops to help provide security for the upcoming Athens Olympic games. The government plans on using a 10,000 troops protection and patrol contingent to help Greek police. The games run from August 13 through August 29, 2004. The unit will include members of the Air Force and Navy as well as the Army. A key mission is bomb disposal. The Athens Olympics are obviously a major terrorist target.
