SEA-TAC, Wash. (AP) - Officials are tightening security for airline and airport employees at Sea-Tac Airport after a baggage handler in Atlanta was accused of smuggling guns on to a plane.

KIRO TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OC2rz7 ) that TSA will also conduct criminal background checks for aviation workers, including airline employees.

Workers will now have to pass through screening before they board a flight.

The number of access points to secure areas will also be reduced.
