US says terrorist groups plan to bomb US-bound flights

The United States has ordered the enhancement of security measures at selected overseas airports with nonstop flights to the country, saying terrorist groups are planning to bomb US-bound flights.
On Wednesday, the US Department of Homeland Security said “enhanced security measures” would be implemented “at certain overseas airports with direct flights into the United States” over the next few days. The move comes during the summer travel season and days before the July 4 holiday.

US officials who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity said the new security measures would include additional inspections of passengers’ shoes and property. They also said that the US had legal authority to order new security requirements at the selected airports because the flights go directly to the United States.
