President Obama is announcing new measures on Tuesday to beef up airline security after an alleged terrorist attempt to destroy a Detroit-bound U.S. airliner on Christmas Day.

Fresh off a Hawaiian vacation dominated by news of the incident, Obama scheduled a meeting on Tuesday afternoon with high-ranking government officials charged with carrying out two reviews he ordered after the botched attack - on screening for airline passengers and on the U.S. terror watch-list system.

After the meeting, to which 20 officials were invited, Obama will talk to the public about his findings, as well as a series of new steps to improve the watch lists and thwart future terrorist attacks, the White House said.
