Amsterdam airport tightens security at duty free

The Dutch anti-terror agency says security has been tightened at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport after investigative journalists smuggled bottles of liquid onto passenger jets bound for London and Washington, D.C.

AMSTERDAM —

The Dutch anti-terror agency says security has been tightened at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport after investigative journalists smuggled bottles of liquid onto passenger jets bound for London and Washington, D.C.

Reporters refilled bottles bought at a duty free store, resealed them and smuggled them back into the store where they bought them. Staff then put the bottles in sealed bags that were not checked by security staff.

The National Anti-terror Coordinator says extra security staff will patrol duty free stores at the airport and there will be more stringent checks on bottles bought there. Some stores will stop selling liquids altogether.

Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab flew from Schiphol to Detroit on Christmas Day with explosives in his underwear.
