DHS, FBI keep watch over truck moves
The U.S. Homeland Security Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation warned state and local governments about the possibility of terrorist attacks with explosive-laden trucks.
“Some terrorist planners consider trucks to be one of the best tools to breach security measures and carry explosives since the U.S. airline industry significantly increased security procedures,” said the agencies in a bulletin on July 30.
“There have been multiple suspicious incidents over the last six months that heighten concern over the potential terrorist acquisition of large trucks and commercial buses,” the agencies added.
