It seems pretty unfair, but aviation is currently very high on the list of security threats, highlighted by another two stories today. The US embassy in Uganda is warning of a “specific threat” to Entebbe International Airport in Kampala.

According to the BBC, Syria-based terrorists have EU passports and could try to use them as a route into the US.
