London: Security officials in Geneva have raised the security level to maximum as they have launched a manhunt for suspects in connection with the Paris attacks on 13 November.
According to the Guardian, policemen armed with submachine guns were posted at important landmarks such as the United Nations institutions as well as the airport and the train station.
Following a tip-off from the U.S. intelligence, a picture of four bearded men suspected of being members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has been circulated among the local police.
“In the framework of investigations carried out following the Paris attacks, at the international and national level, Geneva police and their partners are actively looking for people whose description has been provided by the Swiss Confederation,” the Geneva department of security said in a statement.
The ISIS claimed responsibility for the shooting and bomb attacks which killed 130 people in Paris on 13 November and the police in several European countries are still searching for individuals who were believed to have been involved in the attacks or in their planning. (ANI)
