`Passengers yawning could be terrorists`
Washington: A US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document, aimed at raising awareness on how people can help combat terrorism, has warned that passengers yawning, developing goose bumps and appearing fidgety could all be potential terrorists.
A presentation, titled ‘Terrorism Awareness and Prevention’ released by the New Jersey office of the agency, said it aims to educate the public on recognising potential threats in any environment including at work and in the community as well as how to report them.
The document said the ‘signs will become particularly evident in a person`s eyes, face, neck and body movements’.
According to the report, if an individual has a cold stare, ``trance-like gaze`` or wide ``flashbulb eyes”,` he/she might be a terrorist.
The document also said if somebody seem to exaggerate yawning in conversation, repeatedly touch their face or ears, or excessively watch a clock or fidget, these may be indicators of a terrorist, The Daily Mail reports.
If passengers pace, tremble, perspire or have goose bumps, the department’s report states that these also may be indicators.
The report also states that ‘citizens should never use race or religion as factors for reporting suspicious activity’.
