  • [01] EU experts to meet on air cargo security

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA) -- European Union air cargo security experts will hold a meeting in Brussels on Friday to evaluate the threat of mail bombs, the spokesman for EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmstrom stated on Wednesday.

    Michele Cercone commented that the meeting will be held with the participation of experts in the detection of explosive devices and air cargo security.

    "The terrorist threat is still here," he stressed and urged for vigilance on European and individual EU member-state level.

    Responding to a relevant question, he denied that the European Commission was the recipient of a parcel bomb stressing, however, that its security services are in a state of alert and all incoming parcels are being meticulously checked. (-PA)
