U.S. Bans All Liquids From Carry-Ons on Flights to Russia

The U.S. is banning all liquids, gels and aerosols in carry-on luggage on flights between the U.S. and Russia, tightening security a day before the Winter Olympics open in Sochi.

The new restrictions follow yesterday’s advisory from the U.S. government that warned airlines of the possibility that terrorists might hide bomb-making material in toothpaste tubes that could be assembled into an explosive device during the flight or later.
