70 airport workers in Paris, France have had their security passes revoked on suspicion of being radical Islamist in the ongoing state of emergency in France since the November attack that killed 130 people.
The workers were employed at Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports and were flagged and their red badges revoked after intensive screening and impromptu searches in the lockers of 4000 workers to identify potential terrorists.
Red badges are given to employees with access to secure zones like aircraft cleaners, suppliers and luggage handlers giving unrestricted access to places that are vulnerable to planting of explosives or weapons.
French Security Forces had said that Islamist militants killed in a raid were planning attacks in Charles de Gaulle Airport the largest air hub in France.
The scrutiny on airport staff increased after the downed Russian plane in Egypt making radicalized airport staffers as the access point to the planes thus prompting the need to screen the red-badged airport employees.
