Residents in Germany are being told to be cautious when President Obama visits in a few weeks – to avoid being shot.
He is set to meet with German Chancellor Angel Merkel at Hannover Messe, which is a global trade fair for industrial technology, according to The Local. Security will be tight in the Zoo area of Hannover during the one-day visit.
The 1800 residents who live there have been told not to wave because it could be perceived as threatening and to stay away from windows in their homes.
Anyone who doesn’t live in the area or who works there has to obtain written permission from the government.
Home inspections by police could be conducted if law enforcement becomes alarmed. Vehicles will be searched and passports required.
Public transportation will be stopped during the visit and manhole covers will be welded shut. Building rooftops will be covered with police snipers.
During certain periods, cell phone transmitters will be turned off.
“Please understand that security forces operate under special alert during the visit of the US president,” police wrote to locals, as reported by The Independent.
Security is a top priority anytime a U.S. government official visits Germany, according to The Express. There is more concern this time due to the recent terror attacks in Brussels.
