Geneva security officials said on Thursday that they had raised the alert level in the city and were looking for suspects in connection with investigations into the Nov. 13 Paris attacks.




A security guard at the United Nations in Geneva told Reuters Swiss authorities were searching for four people believed to be in the city, which is close to the French border, or nearby. Another guard said the UN compound was on maximum alert.


“In the framework of investigations carried out following the Paris attacks, at the international and national level, Geneva police and their partners are actively looking for people whose description has been provided by the Swiss Confederation,” the Geneva department of security said in a statement.
