U.S. Bans Ink Cartridges on Passenger Flights
The U.S. is now banning toner and ink cartridges over 16 ounces on passenger planes, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
The ban applies to both domestic flights and international flights in-bound to the U.S.
The cartridges are forbidden in both carry-on and checked bags.
The ban follows last month's thwarted terrorist plot to conceal and ship explosive devices in toner cartridges on aircraft. The al Qaeda affiliate in Yemen has claimed responsibility for the plot.
