U.S. Homeland Security chief to visit Israel

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will visit to Israel this week, Israeli government officials said on Sunday.

Napolitano, whose tenure has been dogged by traveller protests at intrusive airport pat-downs and screenings, was due to arrive in Israel by Monday for several "low-key professional meetings."

"She'll be consulting with the Airport Authority, among other things," said an official briefed on the visit, which will include other countries.
