    US Bans Large Ink Cartridges on Passenger Flights
    -
    The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said Monday it
    has implemented new rules for air cargo following an Oct. 29 attempt to
    ship bombs from Yemen to the U.S. on FedEx and United Parcel Service
    planes.

    A part of the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA
    banned air cargo from Somalia in addition to cargo from Yemen. The
    agency also banned “high risk” cargo from all passenger flights,
    including toner and ink cartridges weighing over 16 ounces for both
    carry-on and checked luggage.The TSA said it also wants to expedite the
    receipt of cargo manifests for international flights to the U.S. prior
    to aircraft departure.

    Canada bans printer cartridges from planes
    Large,
    office-sized printer cartridges are no longer allowed on airplanes,
    according to new security measures enacted on Monday, ten days after it
    was revealed that two explosive packages were making their way through
    international airports.Canada’s new security measures went into effect
    at noon Monday, aiming to enhance the security of air travel through the
    country.According to the new measures, passengers are not permitted to
    travel with office-sized ink and toner cartridges that weight 454 grams
    or more in their carry-on luggage.Smaller cartridges, commonly used in
    personal computers, are still permitted.

    The ban includes air
    travel within the country as well as to the United States.Air carriers
    are also not permitted to transport large cartridges departing from
    airports in Canada.The ban is a direct result of two packages discovered
    in the United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates two weeks ago. The
    packages were found to be bombs hidden inside large, office printer
    cartridges.

    All cargo and mail from Yemen and Somalia have also
    been banned from entering Canada.”Our government’s highest priority is
    the continued safety and security of Canadians and the travelling
    public,” Transportation Minister Chuck Strahl said in a news release.
    “While there was and is no current information that these incidents were
    targeting Canada, we will continue to monitor the international
    security environment closely and take further action as appropriate to
    protect air travellers.”

    The news release says the announcement
    coincides with similar measures announced by U.S. President Barack Obama
    on Monday.”Canada is not immune from terrorist threats. Our law
    enforcement and security agencies remain vigilant and always work
    closely with their counterparts in the United States to protect our
    shared border,” said Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews. “We face the
    same threats and share the same concerns.”

    The two suspicious
    packages found in the United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates were
    destined for the U.S.Airports across Canada and the U.S. were
    immediately launched into high-alert.Strahl is scheduled to further
    explain the new measures at a news conference scheduled for Monday
    afternoon.
