John Tyner, a California man, became a national sensation when he recorded his encounter during an airport security pat-down. After the exchange, Tyner uploaded the video to the web and shortly after - it went viral. "We can do that out here, but if you touch my junk I am going to have you arrested," Tyner told the airport security official. The US media has had a field day, reporting the pros and cons of body scanning machines and pat-downs in the name of security.

Germany is tightening security at airports and train stations after receiving evidence of planned attacks in the next two weeks, the interior ministry has said.
"The security situation in Germany has become more serious," Thomas de Maiziere, Germany's interior minister said on Wednesday.

The authorities in Berlin claim the new information came to light in the aftermath of the foiled plan, hatched in Yemen, to bomb a cargo plane.
