Ben Gurion security stepped up

Security at Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport is being beefed up.The Israel Airports Authority announced Monday that in light of last week’s attempted car bombings in Britain and a subsequent terror alert in New York, the number of guards patrolling Ben Gurion will be increased. A squad of roaming bomb-sniffer dogs also will patrol the airport. The new measures will be tested in an upcoming security drill.
