Ben Gurion International Airport increased its security measures following a failed attempt to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas, Army Radio reported Sunday morning. Passengers heading to the US will also undergo questioning, following a request from US flight authorities. Airports around the world have bolstered precautions after a Nigerian man nearly succeeded in activating a device containing a high explosive attached to his body on Flight 2 53 from Amsterdam.
