TOKYO -- Officials at Japan's Kansai International Airport are at a loss to explain how former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn made it past security checks to board a private jet on his way to Lebanon.

The airport sits on an artificial island in Osaka Bay and serves as the gateway for the Osaka area in western Japan. Ghosn would have had to travel more than 530 km there from his Tokyo residence to board the plane.
