Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is reportedly looking to block Yemeni tankers from delivering liquefied natural gas (LNG) into Boston Harbor next month — citing safety concerns in the wake of a Christmas Day attempt to blow up a U.S. airliner.

Menino has reportedly said Thursday that he is seeking legal assistance to prevent the tankers from entering the harbor — and instead force them to unload away from the city as a security precaution.

“We’re in extraordinary times that call for extraordinary measures to ensure the safety of our city,” the mayor said in an interview with The Boston Globe newspaper.
