US police agencies need to understand the latest terrorist bomb-making techniques being used overseas if they are to help thwart domestic bombings, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Thursday. Chertoff, in a visit to Philadelphia, said his agency is training state and local police in several US cities in the wake of terrorist bomb attacks in London, Glasgow and other cities. The Department of Homeland Security has also created a Web site on which they share information gleaned overseas with local bomb squad members and other law enforcement. "The idea is to train them in what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan and in other parts of the world," Chertoff said at a City Hall news conference, where he was flanked by the mayor, police commissioner and others.
