Pressure Cooker Scare: Saudi Held At Airport

A man from Saudi Arabia has been arrested in the US after being found with a pressure cooker in his luggage at Detroit Airport.

Hussain al Khawahir is said to have lied to Customs and Border Protection officers agents about why he had the device, and is also alleged to have used a passport with a missing page.

The discovery on Saturday rang alarm bells, coming just weeks after two homemade pressure cooker bombs were used to attack the Boston Marathon.
