RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – Brazilian authorities say the attack in Nice will make them review Olympic Games security preparations and probably increase the number of check-points in Rio de Janeiro next month.

Defense Minister Raul Jungmann made the announcement on CBN radio on Friday.

Jungamann regretted the possible increase of check-points will create more restrictions for movement all over the Olympic host city. He did not detail which other measures could be made.

The Brazilian government’s top military adviser, Sergio Etchegoyen, said in the capital of Brasilia that security authorities will meet later Friday to find possible gaps in preparations that could lead to an attack like the one in Nice.
