The State Department, responding to a shooting incident and a rising tide of terrorism worldwide, inaugurated a series of new security regulations and weighed taking still further action. Starting Wednesday, all employees, visitors and reporters had to pass through metal detectors at the three pedestrian entrances and had to wear their identification cards at all times in the building. The department said that further measures are also under consideration, involving the hundreds of employee cars that are parked daily in the building’s basement garage. The department estimates that 10,000 people use the building daily.
