The United States said Friday it was stepping up security screenings of US-bound flights from some Middle East airports as a precaution after the crash of a Russian airliner in Egypt.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the United States also would review its assessments of foreign airports and offer them help with security as well as take other measures, "both seen and unseen."
