UK and other EU countries in urgent review of naked scanners at airports
The introduction of new security technology at airports across Europe, including so-called naked body scanners, could be sped up in the aftermath of the failed bomb plot on-board a US-bound passenger jet on Christmas Day.
UK government officials say an urgent review is underway following the arrest of a suspect who allegedly tried to blow up Northwest Airlines flight 253 on its final approach to Detroit airport from Amsterdam Schipol.
The review in the UK is being carried out ahead of an hastily convened meeting next week of European Union member states to discuss wider airport security measures.
