THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Be prepared for a new security test if you plan to fly this spring.
The Transportation Security Administration will begin swabbing the hands of passengers chosen at random to test for explosives residue.
TSA spokesman Jonathan Allen said people traveling through Port Columbus and other U.S. airports should expect to start seeing such tests within weeks.
The use of hand swabs was spurred by the failed Christmas Day airline bombing attempt in Detroit.
