HURRICANE KATRINA:

Confusion in Europe after US demands more security (Associated Press, January 4, 2010)

Airline passengers bound for the United States faced a hodgepodge of security measures across Europe on Monday, and airports did not appear to be following a U.S. request for increased screening of passengers from 14 countries.

U.S. officials in Washington said the new security measures would be implemented Monday but there were few visible changes on the ground in Europe, which has thousands of passengers on hundreds of daily flights to the United States.

Large hubs such as London, Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt alone account for 20-30 trans-Atlantic flights a day each -- but there was no uniform consensus on necessary security measures.
