Journalist Shows that Amsterdam Airport is Easy Target for Terrorists

Journalist Alberto Stegeman has shown in the past how easy it is to illegally enter parts of Amsterdam Schiphol airport. Recently he demonstrated on television how terrorists can buy liquids in the duty free shop, leave the area, then refill the bottle with other materials, return and get on a plane. It was from Amsterdam airport on Christmas Day 2009 that a Nigerian flying from Amsterdam to Detroit, tried to blow up the plane with materials he had brought through undetected by security. The national coordinator of the fight against terrorism has now announced that procedures at the airport will be examined.
