LAX Steps Up Security for US Military Personnel Following Frankfurt Attack
Marshall McClain, president of the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association (LAAPOA), said the airport has increased its security, but provided few additional details. “Though the target in Germany was clearly the U.S. military, terrorists’ targets can just as easily be civilians as they most recently were in Moscow. It’s our job to thwart such attacks,” he said.
The attack in Germany happened on Wednesday afternoon when a gunman opened fire on a bus carrying American soldiers. Two U.S. airmen were killed and two others were injured.
