Security at airports have come across some interesting items in recent past, but this is the first "chasity belt" that I have heard of being found
by airport security. What is the most "unusual item" you have heard of being discovered by security?
ATHENS (AFP) - When a 40-year old British woman set off a metal detector alarm at Athens airport, bemused security staff found that it was caused by a
chastity belt she was wearing.
"It happened a few days before Christmas. The metal detector went off and after a further check we found out she was wearing a chastity belt,"
airport police official Dimitris Tzouvaras told AFP, confirming a report in the daily newspaper To Vima.
"The woman was allowed to fly on to London on the pilot's responsibility," Tzouvaras added Friday.
According to the press report, the woman told police officers her husband had forced her to put on the belt to make sure she had no extra-marital
affair during a brief visit to Greece.
Tzouvaras did not comment on that report.
