US airport checks home in on electronic devices

Women use their cellphones on January 7, 2014 in Los Angeles, CaliforniaPlane travelers who can switch on their cellphones or other electronic devices will be able to take them aboard as part of new security measures, US authorities said Sunday. US-bound travelers from Europe and the Middle East have faced tighter airport security in recent days over fears that Al-Qaeda-linked militants are developing new explosives that could be slipped onto planes undetected. “During the security examination, officers may also ask that owners power up some devices, including cellphones,” the US Transportation Security Administration said in a statement, noting that all electronic devices are screened by security officers. The agency noted that it could “adjust” security measures further in order to provide maximum security to travelers.
