Israeli Transportation Minister Shaul Yahalom ordered a review of security at Ben-Gurion Airport after the driver of a stolen car broke through a checkpoint there. The driver and two passengers fled on foot after security officials blocked a road leading to the passenger terminal. Airport officials said they had recently replaced border police stationed at the entrance to the airport with guards from a private security firm.
