The after effects of the alleged attempt by a Nigerian man to blow up a passenger plane over the US on Christmas Day continue to be felt.

The Americans are introducing new rules for screening passengers before they board US bound flights.

The rules apply to a list of 14 countries, including – it’s reported- Nigeria, Sudan, Libya, Algeria and Somalia.

The Nigerian government, for one, is not happy.

Information Minister, Dora Akunyili, told a press conference in Abuja that it was wrong to subject Nigerians to such treatment.
