FIFA boosting WC security after Boston

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- A top FIFA official says the international football organization will be stepping up security for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil as a result of the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

FIFA Secretary-General Jerome Valcke said during a visit to Haiti that the security measures will include secret service agents, police officers, military, and Interpol. He also says a perimeter will be set up around stadiums and a satellite will provide surveillance over the country.

Valcke made the remarks Tuesday at a news conference at the headquarters of the Haitian soccer association. He was part of a FIFA delegation led by FIFA President Sepp Blatter.
