X-ray machines installed in NAIA
After the news about jewelry smugglers broke last month, seven new x-ray machines were installed in three terminals in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). The x-ray machines are set to look for taxable items in carry-on bags, such as foreign currency, watches, jewelry, and luxury bags, as well as illegal drugs and other prohibited items. This bag examination is non-intrusive, as the practice of opening of bags for inspection has been suspended since April last year .
Wreath laying ceremony to be held on Manila Day
On June 24, a wreath laying ceremony will be conducted at Rizal Park. As such, tourists who will visit the park should expect a big crowd. Since Manila mayor Joseph Estrada is expected to attend, tight security is also likely to be implemented in the area on that day.
