“Murder in Samarkand” confiscated by Luton airport security

August 31, 2006

A traveler was prevented from taking Craig Murray’s book on a recent flight from Luton to Berlin. “Is that about terrorism?” he was asked. “I am afraid you cannot take this on board, sir.”
Luton airport authorities explained that they were looking for books which might contain material which might be sensitive in the current security situation and have issued a list of other books which it is forbidden to take onboard. They include:

– The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Tales of Terror
– The Gunpowder Plot: Terror and Faith in 1605  by Antonia Fraser
– Rumpole and the Reign of Terror  by John Mortimer
– The Role of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in Wartime, Emergencies, and Terrorist Attacks: An Issue of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics  by David Powers
– The Best Friends’ Guide to Toddlers: A Survival Manual to the ‘Terrible Twos’ including potty training for beginners
– The Terrible Tudors (Horrible Histories)
– Ivan the Terrible: a biography
– Marlon Brando: L’enfant Terrible  by F. X. Feeney and Paul Duncan
– Horrid Henry’s Evil Enemies by Francesca Simon and Tony Ross
