New TSA Security Directive to Ban Cell Phones That Don’t Power Up at Some Airports

Security screeners at overseas airports may begin seizing cell phones that don’t turn on as part of the continued effort to crack down on threats of terrorism, the Wall Street Journal reports.

That means cell phones without battery power won’t be allowed on the plane and could subject the traveler to increased scrutiny.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson hasn’t said why some airports are taking the extra precaution.

“This is not something to overreact to or overspeculate about. But it’s something we felt was necessary,” Mr. Johnson said Sunday on NBC, citing continuing safety threats to the U.S.

Citing people familiar with the directive, the Wall Street Journal reported that the tightened security could taken place at more than a dozen airports in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
