Dutch to use full body s

The Netherlands announced Wednesday that it will immediately begin using full body scanners for flights heading to the United States, issuing a report that called the failed Christmas Day airline bombing a "professional" terror attack. Officials said Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian, managed to board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 to Detroit from Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport carrying undetected explosives but failed to detonate them. The plane was carrying over 300 people. "It is not exaggerating to say the world has escaped a disaster," Interior Minister Guusje Ter Horst told a news conference.
