    Reuters are reporting:

    (Reuters) – The European Union will end current restrictions on liquids in air passengers’ hand luggage by April 2013 in an overhaul of aviation security, the EU’s executive said Thursday.

    European airports will have to install new technology capable of detecting liquid explosives as a result of the move.

    The ban on liquids came into force in Europe in 2006 after British police uncovered an al-Qaeda plot to blow up trans-atlantic airliners bound for North America using bombs made from liquid explosives.

    by 2013 liquids as a mode for terrorists will be old hat. well done BAA – HMG – Europe for giving terrosist R & D departments due notice of time frames.

    You know there is some sense in the Israeli and now the US way of things – dont tell or publish to the public about new security measures, just implement them.
