Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will form a blue ribbon panel of experts to examine security and the potential threat of terror attacks at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California, US.

The members of the panel, to be announced in the next few weeks, will include representatives from aviation, homeland security, law enforcement and advisers from Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel.

Before the end of 2010, the independent panel will examine whether LAX’s perimeter, terminals and roadway entrances are adequately protected.

The team will also review how airport police officers are assigned and the overall command and control of the department, according to mercurynews.com.

The panel has been proposed after the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association said the airport is more vulnerable to terrorist attack since 9/11.
