TSA enhancing security at airports, rail stations following Belgian attacks

Posted on March 23, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is deploying additional security to major city airports and at various rail and transit stations around the U.S. in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Brussels, ABC News reports.

The Department of Homeland Security, which oversees TSA, announced the enhanced measures Tuesday, despite there being "no specific, credible intelligence of any plot to conduct similar attacks in the U.S. The Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson added that TSA is working closely with state and local law enforcement, including FBI, airport and transit authorities, and the aviation industry to augment security.

Bombs were set off at the main airport and a subway station in Brussels Tuesday morning. At least 30 people were killed and hundreds more were wounded in the attacks. For the full story, click here.
