|Vatican||HOLY SEE NAMES A SECURITY PANEL|
The Vatican has established a committee to toughen security during next year's Jubiilee celebrations, according to the Italian daily Il Messagero.
Some 25 million tourists and pilgrims are expected to converge on Rome for the festivities organized by the Roman Catholic Church.
The committee will ''collect useful information and coordinate measures required to ensure security,'' according to a decree signed by Cardinal Edmund Szoka, president of Vatican City's Pontifical Commission, late last month.
Members will ''elaborate and propose security and risk-prevention measures,'' the decree said.
