TSA Inspectors Heading to Yemen to Check Security

Sunday, 31 Oct 2010 09:54 AM

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. inspectors are heading to Yemen to monitor cargo security practices and pinpoint holes in the system.

An internal government report, obtained by The Associated Press, says the team of six inspectors from the Transportation Security Administration will give Yemeni officials recommendations and training to improve cargo security.

The report also says the agency is considering extending its security directive to increase inspection of cargo for all flights through Nov. 8.

Two women in Yemen have been arrested for sending mail bombs to Chicago synagogues. Authorities discovered the bombs Friday on cargo planes in the United Arab Emirates and England. Officials say the terror plot bears the hallmarks of al-Qaida.
