Nigeria Approves Air Marshals On US-Bound Flights

Nigeria will create anti-terror squads and deploy air marshals on flights to the US. A new bill to strengthen counter-terrorism measures is awaiting approval by parliament, according to Vice President Goodluck Jonathan. He met the US deputy secretary of Homeland Security to discuss last month’s failed attempt by a Nigerian and requested that Nigeria be removed from a list of 14 countries deemed either state sponsors of terror or “countries of interest”.
