A week after a gunman killed two U.S. service members aboard a bus at Germany's Frankfurt Airport, the U.S. military has stopped using blue American-style school buses to transport troops, the newspaper Stars and Stripes reports.
The distinctive buses were criticized as "obvious targets for terrorists," according to the Stripes report.
Frankfurt Airport officials told the newspaper the blue buses have not been seen at the facility since the shooting, which left two U.S. airmen dead and two wounded.
Americans are still being shuttled from Ramstein Air Base to the Frankfurt airport using German buses, the report said.
The suspect in the attack is Arid Uka, 21, whomÂ German authorities described as a recently radicalized Muslim apparently influenced by local radical Islamist websites.
The driver of the bus, Airman 1st Class Zachary Cuddeback, 21, of Stanardsville, Virginia, and Senior Airman Nicholas Alden, 25, of Williamston, South Carolina, were killed in the attack.
Two other U.S. personnel, Senior Airman Edgar Veguilla, from Wichita Falls, Texas, and Staff Sgt. Kristoffer Schneider, of Irwin, Pennsylvania, were injured and are "doing well and improving," an Air Force spokesman told Stars and Stripes.
