WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Transportation Security Administration said on Thursday it is issuing a new security directive requiring enhanced screening of cargo coming from Turkey. The change was “to adequately address emerging threats to cargo and raise the baseline for global aviation security,” TSA spokesman Michael England said. The directive mandates voluntary measures already in use by Turkey and will ensure “cargo flying to the United States is screened and secured in accordance with the Air Cargo Advance Screening Program,” he said.
