TSA intensifies security measures for passengers flying to the U.S.

Got a journey from the Middle East and Europe to the U.S.? Better make sure your electronic gadgets' batteries are all-charged up!

TSA Screener

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) implemented enhanced security measures for passengers flying to the U.S. from the Middle East and Europe. During the regular screening procedures, TSA screeners may ask travelers to power on their electronic devices.

Out of the fear that terrorists might have developed new bomb making techniques, the said counter terrorism initiative has been considered.

"As always, we will continue to adjust security measures to promote aviation security without unnecessary disruptions to the traveling public", Sec. Jeh Johnson of the Department of Homeland Security said.

On the other hand, TSA did not specify which airports in particular will experience the magnified security check mechanism.
