Taiwanese officials warn that a female mainlander may be Hong Kong-bound with a bomb. Their report unfortunately offered few details, describing the woman as long haired and that she might be on a Dragonair or Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong today or tomorrow. SCMP reports:
Jeff Sun Jianfeng, vice-president of Hong Kong Airlines, confirmed that the airline had responded to the threat by sending an alert to all ground staff, cabin crew and pilots.
The document reads: “Information received that a Security THREAT might occur on flights to/from China and Hong Kong on the coming 2 days.
“[All] flights to/from China and Hong Kong on 06-07Jun2014 are required to apply for Enhanced Flight Deck Entry/Exit Procedure and crews are required to raise their awareness of in-flight security.”
But Sun said it was only a “low-level” alert.
If this is “low level,” what’s “high level?”
