Possible changes coming to airport security

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The way you go through airports could be changing.

The Department of Homeland Security is expected to announce new safety procedures Friday morning. This follows last weekend’s deadly plane crash in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

U.S. Intelligence officials say terrorism is “the leading theory” behind the crash of the Russian airliner over Egypt. The concern is that an explosive could slip through screening overseas and somehow make its way to an American-bound airliner.

One traveler says, “We have to sacrifice our time and freedom, but I think, what else can you do?” Another says, “I guess it’s good to bump up security but I don’t know how much it actually works.”

TSA and Homeland Security have not commented on any changes so far.
