French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the deadly explosions in Brussels are a reminder that a "very high security level" will be required during this year's European Championship in France.

In the wake of the Paris attacks that left 130 people dead in November, tournament organisers had already strengthened security measures and made changes to fan zones.
Cazeneuve said the state will contribute up to 2 million euros (USD 1.1 million) for video surveillance in the designated areas for the public.
Cazeneuve said Euro 2016 should bring "sportsmanship, festivities and security for teams, accompanying staff and spectators".
