    The Western European Union decided today to triple the size of its police force in Albania in the next few months, according to WEU's Secretary- General, who is on a visit to Tirana.

    According to the French news agency AFP, the members of the European police force will be increased from 20 to 60 in an effort to reinforce the Albanian police.

    The WEU Secretary-General left open the possibility for the European force to stay in the country and after April, due to the fact that the reorganization of the Albanian police, which became imperative after the popular uprising last March, will be a long process.
