American Airlines Loses Luggage of Israeli Security Detail – 4 Guns Missing
American Airlines in New York lost luggage belonging to Israeli security officials traveling to the US for Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit. When the luggage was discovered in Los Angeles 4 Glock 9 mm handguns were missing.
NBC New York reported:
American Airlines workers at John F. Kennedy Airport apparently lost luggage belonging to security officials for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, officials said Tuesday.
The lost suitcase — with weapons inside — was eventually discovered in Los Angeles. Four Glock 9 mm handguns that were in the bag are now missing and police officials say they believe they were stolen.
The bag was supposed to have been on the flight from JFK to Washington DC where additional Israeli security officers were being assigned to help with the Israeli leader’s visit with President Obama at the White House.
Port Authority police at JFK are now investigating whether the guns were stolen in New York or after the errant bag arrived in Los Angeles, a PA spokesman said.
