France boosted passenger screening at its airports, responding to a Washington request for extra security for US-bound flights over fears Islamist radicals could be plotting new attacks using hard-to-detect bombs.

The French move, follows similar action by Britain, and notably impacts Europe's two busiest hubs: Heathrow and Charles de Gaulle.

Combined, an average 2.5 million passengers use those two airports each day.

French and British authorities urged passengers to allow extra time to get past the additional measures, which were not specified but were believed to focus on footwear and electronic items such as mobile phones and computers.
