TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Starting from Monday, randomly selected U.S.-bound passengers at Taiwan’s international airports will be asked to take electronic devices larger than a smartphone out of their carry-on bags at screening lanes for separate screening, said Taiwan’s Civil Aeronautics Administration (民航局).

“The new security measures are implemented to align with the U.S.’s request,” said the CAA.

The CAA said that the explosives-detection devices are now in place at airport terminals. Passengers flying to the U.S. with electronics larger than a smartphone, such as tablets, laptops, e-readers, DVD players, game consoles, and cameras will be asked to send their devices for separate screening before boarding.    [FULL  STORY]
