Passengers going through airport security in the U.S. will soon be required to remove more items from their carry-on bags under new screening protocols.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced Wednesday that travelers will now be required to place all electronics larger than a cellphone into separate bins in order to receive X-ray screening.
It’s the latest move from the Trump administration as it looks to ramp up national security.
The move comes amid increasing concern that terrorists are pursuing innovative methods to smuggle bombs onto planes, which prompted the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to ban laptops on the cabins of certain U.S.-bound flights.
But DHS Secretary John Kelly rolled out a new aviation security plan last month, which is being implemented in stages, that all international flights must follow if they want to avoid the ban on laptops and other large electronics in the flight cabin.
