Drones, cameras, electromagnetic field detectors at Olympics

Korea is using state-of-the art technology for the security of international VIPs invited to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, according to the organizing committee, Wednesday.

A team led by Joon Young-hoon, head of the Presidential Security Service, is in charge of the safety and protection of 26 top foreign dignitaries including presidents, prime ministers, kings and queens from 21 countries.

They will be subject to heavy escort once they arrive here. Each VIP will be exclusively assigned a car, the location of which will be updated in real time in a situation room.

The security team will also rely on 1,070 surveillance cameras set up around airports, train stations, roads, stadia and other facilities on the way to PyeongChang to better locate the VIPs. KOREA TIMES
