    Russian authorities will tighten personal checks and enhance luggage screening on transport, according to Russian Transport Ministry.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia will enhance personal checks and luggage screening on transport, the country's Transport Ministry said Saturday.

    "Above all, we will tighten personal checks and enhance luggage screening on transport," a ministry spokesperson told RIA Novosti.

    Transport security agencies will be monitoring passengers, vehicles, cargoes and luggage using screening equipment. The Transport Ministry also said it would step up patrols at transport hubs.

    Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said earlier today that Russia had boosted security checks on transport following deadly terror attacks in Paris.
