France puts the Eiffel Tower behind an 8ft-high glass wall to protect the monument from terrorists

France is going to put the Eiffel Tower behind an 8ft-high glass wall to protect it from terrorists following an attack at the Louvre.

The security measure is part of a multi-million euro plan to prevent jihadist attacks in the French capital, which have claimed 238 lives around France in the past two years.

It will cost around €19million and comes after a machete-wielding man stormed the Louvre last week in the latest attack on French soil.
