A DUTCH undercover journalist has managed to carry on what could have been liquid explosives onto a flight from Amsterdam to the US.
The Detroit News said the revelations came in a Dutch television program, Undercover in Nederland, which aired recently.
In the show, journalist Alberto Stegeman demonstrates how he managed to smuggle six litres of water from Schiphol International Airport and on to England’s Heathrow International Airport.
According to a business associate, he travelled with the items undetected at Dulles International Airport in Washington.
A press release for the program says the stunt exposes security weaknesses at Amsterdam’s airport – months after a failed terrorist attack on a Detroit-bound flight from the airport.
