US, Europe Have Different Views On Aviation Security

2 June 2017
USA Today reports that US and European officials “differ over whether to expand a ban on electronics larger than cellphones in carry-on bags aboard airliners – an example of how security officials can disagree about how to respond to the same threat.” USA Today reports that DHS Secretary John Kelly “has considered expanding a March electronics ban on flights from 10 airports in the Middle East and Africa to Europe or all international flights,” but that Europeans “have resisted a broader ban” and “have explored other methods, such as improved screening at airport checkpoints, to thwart a bombing.” (Image: A security sign is posted at Air Canada at Dulles International Airport on Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010 in Chantilly, Va.
