"Bomb" bag passes through security at Brisbane airport
The bag was only questioned once the baggage handlers saw the "bomb" bag and raised an alarm. The bag, still unscreened (!), was then dragged through the populated airport before it was opened and checked. Fortunately it turned out to be a false alarm.
This made me think: 1) Why would anyone choose to travel with a bag that has "bomb" written on it? 2) How on earth could that be missed on check-in, and then dragged through the airport without being screened first? What if there really was a bomb in it?
Anyway, the case has been referred to the police and the Transport Worker's Union at the Brisbane airport have demanded an investigation of the airport's security system.
