New security measures affecting flights into the US are coming into effect



New security measures affecting flights into the US are coming into effect, which US authorities say are aimed at reducing the threat of hidden explosives.

 
They include enhanced screening of passengers and electronic devices.


About 2,000 commercial flights a day from more than 100 countries will be affected.


Some airline officials have expressed concern that the checks could cause delays and lead to higher prices.


The measures apply to all commercial flights into the US, the Department of Homeland Security says.
