The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said Wednesday it will implement new stricter security rules requiring airline travelers to remove all electronic items larger than mobile phones from carry on baggage for screening.
Prior rules require laptops to be removed for separate screening. TSA said the new rules may result in more bag checks. The rules have been in place in a pilot project at 10 US airports and will expand to all US airports in the months ahead, the agency said.
