Charged - - NEWS -

Do you carry a smart­phone when you fly? Well then air­port se­cu­rity is go­ing to be that lit­tle more vig­i­lant when you step onto their turf in fu­ture.

Any­one fly­ing into or out of the UK must be able to power up any elec­tronic de­vices or risk not be­ing able to bring these de­vices with them. These mea­sures have been brought in af­ter the US ad­vised ad­di­tional se­cu­rity mea­sures to be put in place for smart­phones and other elec­tronic de­vices.

Sky News re­ported that US se­cu­rity officials said that they fear that mem­bers of the Ye­men-based al Qaeda have cre­ated smart­phone bombs that can evade de­tec­tion from reg­u­lar air­port scan­ners. So, be sure to charge any de­vices that you’re bring­ing in your hand lug­gage be­fore you travel or you may have to leave them be­hind.
