Police at Brussels airport have claimed at least 50 Islamic State supporters are working there as baggage handlers, cleaners and catering staff.

In an astonishing open letter, the officers said they have warned about the terrorist sympathisers whose security badges give them access to planes, but they remain employed.

The airport police, who are threatening to go on strike because of security deficiencies, also said they have raised the issue of terrorists scouting the airport to plan possible attacks.

police-lights25

Uniformed officers, some in tactical gear, patrolled airports and transit hubs in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington as major airlines including Delta, United and American canceled and rerouted flights headed to Brussels.

“While there’s no known credible threat to (New York State) at this time, we’re stepping up security at high-profile locations,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

In addition to the increased presence of New York City police officers, Cuomo activated National Guard troops to provide additional security at the city’s two airports, as well as major railroad stations.

JFK ALLOWS PASSENGERS FROM MEXICO TO EXIT WITHOUT CLEARING CUSTOMS — AGAIN: REPORT


jfk-airport-tile

Passengers aboard American Airlines Flight 1223 from Cancun were able to leave the airport Jan. 18 without having their passports or bags checked, sources told The New York Daily News.

A similar incident occurred just two months ago involving another American Airlines flight from Cancun, in which 150 passengers were able to skip the customs process, The Daily News reported.

“It’s absolutely absurd,” one of the travelers in the latest security breach, a New York man who traveled to Cancun for a Phish concert, told The Daily News. “To think that anyone could be walking off of that plane and just get right into the city. It could be terrorists, El Chapo’s henchmen, anyone.”

The TSA Could Soon Stop Accepting Some State Driver’s Licenses for Air Travel


US-WEATHER-THANKSGIVING-LIFESTYLE

Residents of a handful of states may soon need to remember their passport before they head to the airport, even when flying domestically.

That’s because the Transportation Security Administration is getting closer to enforcing a decade-old federal law demanding that states comply with various federal standards when issuing driver’s licenses and The New York Times reports that residents in a few non-compliant states may not be able to use their driver’s licenses pass through airport security lines as soon as next year.

She appeared distressed after being told by airline staff that she would have to buy a new ticket and was later found in the toilets by three Russian passengers, according to local media.

At the end of April, Ms Sutton posted on her Facebook page the story of Sabeen Mahmud, a human rights campaigner who was killed by a gunman in Karachi, Pakistan.

Just weeks later, her predecessor at the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR), Ammar Al Shahbander, was killed in an Islamic State bomb blast in Baghdad on May 2.

cognac_aa_3417960b A woman was stopped at Beijing Capital International Airport for trying to carry a bottle of cognac worth £120 on the plane. Faced with either having to throw the whole bottle away or drinking the contents, she opted for the latter.

The woman, surnamed Zhao, downed the entire thing at around noon, because she didn’t want to waste the bottle of Rémy Martin XO Excellence that she had purchased at a US airport earlier on her journey.
