This is deeply disturbing news. Having travelled extensively, I have noticed wide variations in airline security. For example, US airports seem to deploy the latest technology, compared to say the UK where human intervention is much more prevalent.

So with technology trailing terrorist expertise, surely it’s right to limit the carrying of laptops from high risk countries?

Thoughts?
