UK airports and nuclear power stations on high alert
Britain's airport and nuclear power stations on Sunday were put on high alert amid fears that their systems may be targeted by hackers.
Over the last 24 hours, the British intelligence service Spies have issued a series of threat, warning terrorist might have discovered means of bypassing scanners in airports and security at nuclear facilities.
They believe that the terrorist have found ways of planting an explosive in laptops or smartphones which would not be picked up by screening.
Recently, the UK had followed the US in preventing passengers on flights from carrying laptops and tablets in the cabin. The decision was prompted by reports that militant groups want to smuggle explosive devices inside electronic gadgets.
The UK ban on any electronic item larger than a normal smartphone applies to all direct passenger flights from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia.
