LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is calling for federal officials to mandate more body-imaging scanners and bomb-sniffing dogs at U.S. airports. Villaraigosa's comments Tuesday at Los Angeles International Airport come more than a week after a passenger attempted to set off an explosive on an international flight to Detroit.
The mayor says the Transportation Security Administration's policy of keeping international passengers from leaving their seats one hour before landing was inadequate. He called for tighter security on the ground at the nation's airports. Los Angeles has the country's second busiest airport. Villaraigosa vowed to step up security at the facility.
