Random explosives tests launched at Prague Airport

Prague’s Václav Havel Airport began checking passengers’ luggage for traces of explosives on Monday. Airport security staff may now randomly open selected luggage to take smears of the contents that are run through an explosive materials detector. The process will be carried out in a special hall and travellers will learn it has taken place from a tag subsequently attached to their luggage. Passengers have been instructed to use locks that can be opened without their cases being damaged.
