DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. January 6, 2017, 9:12 PM (IDT)
A provisional figure of 5 dead and 8 injured was released by officials after the shooting attack Friday at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood international airport near the Terminal 2 baggage claim area. The FBI has arrived to take part in the investigation after a single gunman was taken into custody after being shot and wounded. No information yet on the perpetrator or his motive. All services at the airport and incoming and outgoing flights are temporarily suspended while police investigate whether the gunman had accomplices.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
