- Homeland security proposes enhanced screening of personal devices
- Current restrictions to be removed if airports meet new requirements
US Homeland Security secretary John Kelly on Wednesday unveiled enhanced security measures for foreign flights arriving in the United States in what officials said was a move to prevent an expansion of an in-cabin ban on laptops and other large electronic devices.
“Inaction is not an option,” Kelly said, saying he believed airlines will comply with the new screening. But he said the measures were not the last step to tighten security.
