Brazil has raised the security level for Pope Francis' July 22 to 28 visit to Rio de Janeiro. The defense ministry is boosting the initial 8,500 army, air force and navy personnel scheduled to be deployed for the events to 10,266.

It was reported that the armed forces will handle security in 10 areas, including control of airspace, border surveillance, chemical and biological weapons, explosives trade, maritime defense and cyber-security. Two camera-fitted helicopters will be deployed for surveillance, and drones may also be activated. An additional 7,000 police will beef up the city's existing 12,000-strong police force to ensure the safety of the Pope.

The Pope is expected to deliver a speech to young pilgrims on Copacabana beach and attend a prayer vigil with more than 1 million youths in Guaratiba, 40 kilometres from Rio de Janeiro.
