No. The entrance to O'Malley's Irish Pub, adjacent to Hotel Torni, during the Asem (Asia-Europe) meeting in Helsinki. With some fifteen heads of state gathering in the city, security has been a major issue, particularly as the meeting coincides with the 5th anniversary of 9/11. No doubt some of the dignitaries were staying at the hotel - not every pub has metal detectors. Yet.
PS Oops, correction, more like 40 heads of state. No wonder we've had a copper on every street corner.
