200 Police Officers to Guard Diego Maradona’s Burial Site (Photo)

200 police officers will guard the cemetery where Diego Maradona is buried to prevent grave robbers.

Argentine officials fear fanatical fans will plunder his plot in a bid to collect ghoulish mementoes of the World Cup superstar.

The Ministry of Security said the strict measures would be in force for at least a week to “prevent any incident” at the Bella Vista cemetery on the outskirts of the capital Buenos Aires.
Many more lined the route of the funeral cortege, and cops fought running battles with fans.

Officials now fear a repeat of 1987, when ghouls robbed the grave of former Argentina president Juan Peron. A source said: “The authorities do not want to take any chances.

“The people worshipped Diego in the same way they adored Peron and there are genuine fears there may be an attempt to break in and remove parts of the body.”
