Switzerland. Geneva. Paquis neighborhood.Three police officers check the identities of two young albanian men who will be left free. View on the Geneva Water Fountain and the Paquis Express, which is a small train for tourists. The elegant Geneva Water Fountain (Jet d'Eau de Genève) is the lakeshore's star attraction dazzling visitors as it shoots 140 metres into the sky. The policewoman (L) and the policeman (R), both wear a ballistic vest, bulletproof vest or bullet-resistant vest which is an item of personal armor that helps absorb the impact from knives, firearm-fired projectiles and shrapnel from explosions, and is worn on the torso. Soft vests are made from many layers of woven or laminated fibers and can be capable of protecting the wearer from small-caliber handgun and shotgun projectiles, and small fragments from explosives such as hand grenades. 15.05.12 © 2012 Didier Ruef..
