Government issues new airport cargo security measures

Originally printed at–106483048.html
November 1, 2010 In the wake of last week’s terrorist scare, federal officials implemented new airport security measures for cargo.
Explosives were found in two UPS packages last week.
Without releasing details, the Transportation Security Administration said they’re enhancing protocols for screening cargo coming into the country.
The Department of Homeland Security released this statement after the incident:

“As a precaution, DHS has taken a number of steps to enhance security. Some of these security measures will be visible while others will not. The public may recognize specific enhancements including heightened cargo screening and additional security at airports.”
