WASHINGTON: US transport security officers confiscated a missile launcher from a checked bag at Baltimore/Washington international airport on Monday, with a Texas man saying it was a souvenir from Kuwait. The "man said he was bringing it back from Kuwait as a souvenir. Perhaps he should have picked up a keychain instead!" Transportation Security Administration (TSA) spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein tweeted. The TSA said "the man, a resident of Jacksonville, Texas, told officials that he was an active military personnel". "Fortunately the item was not a live device. It was confiscated and handed over to the state fire marshal for safe disposal. The man was permitted to catch his flight," TSA said. - AFP
