Chertoff announces new screening measures for air cargo


Chertoff says the new procedures for packages brought to an airline counter are now mandatory at all airports around the country.
The move was in response to concerns that such deliveries -- also known as air cargo -- were not being screened for explosives.
The directive was implemented today by the Transportation Security Administration.
Chertoff praised Logan as being the first airport in the country to begin screening 100 percent of its passengers' checked baggage for explosives.
