The UK beefed up security at airports in response to a U.S. warning amidst fears of the return of Europeans jihadists from Iraq and Syria and the development of hard-to-detect explosives.
“As always, we will continue to adjust security measures to promote aviation security without unnecessary disruptions to the travelling public.,” said the British Ministry of Transport. “Most passengers should not experience significant disruption,” he said.
This request comes after U.S. security sources say that it is believed that the bomb makers from Nusra Front, a subsidiary of al Qaeda in Syria and Yemen’s al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are working to develop explosives that could avoid detection by the current surveillance systems at airports.
For his part, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Minister of Transport Patrick McLoughlin, attempted to reassure people, right at the beginning of the summer holidays.
