Security personnel at Geneva airport have been taking a new course to help them spot the signs of radicalization among their colleagues, according to media reports.

Airport staff have been taking the course since the beginning of this year, Le Temps reported on Wednesday.

The training, approved by the cantonal government's department of security, was "not dictated by any particular event but relates to the global context of threat that the airport's management is well aware of," said Stämpfli. "We know that the potential radicalization of individuals working on a sensitive site constitutes a risk."
