US warns of ‘unconfirmed threat’ to CAL flights
-gov’t assures ‘highest security posture’, airline to operate as normal
Citing unconfirmed threat information, the US Em-bassy yesterday advised its citizens here to avoid CAL flights over the next few days and government officials last night said the “highest security posture” in in place while the regional airline said its service will go ahead as scheduled.
The US embassy advisory posted on its website was unprecedented here post 9/11 and fuelled questions as to what sort of security threat existed, its credibility and source. Security officials were tightlipped about this yesterday.
