KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) -U.S. Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nicholas Kimball said Tuesday that the agency is helping the Jamaicans with "precautionary security measures" for U.S.-bound flights following what he called "unsubstantiated threat information."
He says it is being done out of "an abundance of caution."
Jamaica's civil aviation authority says a temporary suspension
of air cargo and duty free items to the U.S. was imposed Sunday
evening after an "unconfirmed report" of a threat.
U.S. and Jamaican officials refused to disclose specifics about
the threat or say when flights will resume.
