UK bans export of bomb detection device

Britain has banned the export of a hand-held machine marketed as a bomb-detection device in Iraq and Afghanistan, months after the US military warned that the device is ineffective and fraudulent.


The ADE651 device made by the British company ATSC is used at security checkpoints across Baghdad, and its makers claim it can detect explosives at a distance. (AP)
