US airport security program to launch in Yemen

The US government agency in charge of airport security is poised to launch an 18-month program in Yemen, the head of international operations at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said Thursday.

“We’ve been working extensively with Yemen,” Vicki Reeder of the TSA Office of Global Strategies told a Senate hearing on international airline safety.

“We have a team of inspectors and instructors who go to various countries, to various airports to evaluate their security posture and identify areas where they need additional help, and then we work with funding sources to get the mechanisms to be able to pay for extended support to various locations.

“We have a team that leaves Sana’a tomorrow — they have been there for two weeks, working with the Yemenis, and we have a program that will be starting up in the very near future, an 18-month program with Yemen,” she said.
