Taiwan Airport Tightens Security Due to Bomb Threat


Taipei, August 02 (QNA) - Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport stepped up its security measures on Tuesday after it received a bomb threat, amid reports of an imminent visit by Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.
Taiwan's Aviation Police Bureau said it has assigned a special team to tighten airport security and ensure flight safety, in the wake of a threat that three explosive devices would be placed in the airport.
The threat was issued Tuesday morning to Taoyuan International Airport Corp., which operates the airport, but so far, nothing suspicious has been found on the premises, police said in the afternoon.
The statement pointed out that the authorities opened investigations to find out the source of the communication, and the seriousness of the threat.
Taipei is awaiting Pelosi's arrival within hours, amid the escalation of Chinese threats from the consequences of this visit. (QNA)
