New air cargo restriction imposed after bomb plot

A further restriction on air cargo has been imposed following the recent interception of bombs, Transport Secretary Philip Hammond says.Over 30 "trans-shipment" screening exemptions had been revoked, he said.It means more foreign freight will be screened at UK airports before being reloaded on to onward flights.The move follows last Friday’s discovery of a bomb on a US-bound UPS cargo plane at East Midlands airport and a bomb on a FedEx plane in Dubai. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11696684
