U.S. officials said on Wednesday that the Obama administration is pushing for increased security precautions at European airports because of concerns that al Qaeda operatives in Syria and Yemen have teamed up to develop bombs that can be smuggled onto planes. According to law-enforcement and security officials, the U.S. government is in discussions with European authorities on measures that could include extra scrutiny of U.S.-bound passengers’ electronics and footwear, and installation of additional bomb-detection machines.
