Washington: The US government has warned airlines that some terrorists are considering surgically implanting explosives into humans to carry out attacks, a media report said Wednesday.
There is no intelligence pointing to a specific plot, but the information was shared with the domestic and international carriers, the huffingtonpost.com reported.

The Transportation Security Administration said people travelling to the US from overseas may experience additional screening at airports.
