Tokyo Police Launch Counterterrorism Unit At Haneda Airport

Tokyo police launched a counterterrorism unit Thursday "to deal with potential hijackings and other attacks at Tokyo International Airport in Haneda," according to JIJI. The Metropolitan Police Department "tightened security" after the airport expanded its int'l flights by about 50% last month to about 90,000 per year. That is expected "to rise further before the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics in 2020." MPD Superintendent-General Naoyoshi Takatsuna said at a ceremony, “I hope you will work hard as the last fortress for the country’s air security in the run-up to the Tokyo Olympics" (JIJI, 4/3).
