Johannesburg - The head of Interpol says the Soccer World Cup will have the largest ever deployment of the organisation's officers at any global event.
Interpol secretary-general Ronald Noble says that 20 to 25 countries would be providing manpower to support the South African police, as well as additional officers from countries sending teams to the tournament.
Noble said there are currently no known terrorist threats to the World Cup, but ports of entry will be focal points for security services, where passengers will be screened using Interpol databases.
Noble says technological advancements have also made mobile spot checks of identities and fingerprints possible, and this would be taking place at fan parks, stadiums and other World Cup venues.
