Dominican Republic airports boost security on U.S. terror alert

Santo Domingo.- The Airport Security and Civil Aviation (CESAC) agencies heightened security at all of the country’s international airports Thursday, after Washington issued alerts on possible threat of bombs hidden in airlines passengers’ shoes.

CESAC director Miguel Paulino said security agents have been instructed to carry out thorough inspections of passengers’ shoes and their luggage before boarding.

He said the controls and manual and automatic checks of travelers bound for the United States and Europe were increased.
