Meeting in Toledo today to discuss airport scanners

Thu 21st Jan 2010

EU interior ministers are meeting with the U.S. homeland security chief to discuss boosting airport security with full-body scanners after the failed plot to bomb a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day.

Janet Napolitano is expected to press European countries to follow the Obama administration's lead in ramping up aviation security.

The EU is divided on the scanner issue amid concerns over whether the devices invade travelers' privacy and pose health risks.

The ministers gathered Thursday in the southern Spanish town of Toledo for the informal session to gauge European sentiment. Spain says no decision is expected at the meeting.

Spain now holds the rotating EU presidency.
