European capitals tightened security Friday ahead of New Year's celebrations, erecting concrete barriers in city centers and stepping up police numbers after the Daesh (ISIS) attack in Berlin last week that killed 12 people. In the German capital, police closed the Pariser Platz square in front of the Brandenburg Gate and prepared to deploy 1,700 extra officers, many along a party strip where armored cars will flank concrete barriers blocking off the area.Across France, more than 90,000 police and thousands of soldiers will be on duty for New Year's Eve, authorities said. Police in southwest France Wednesday arrested a man suspected of having planned an attack on New Year's Eve. Two other people, one of whom was suspected of having planned an attack on police, were arrested in a separate raid, also in southwest France near Toulouse, police sources told Reuters.
