The Asia-Pacific airline industry group is protesting the introduction of full-body scanners at airports, saying it treats all passengers as potential terrorists, the Australian [2] newspaper reported.

The Association of Asia Pacific Airlines said there is insufficient evidence about the effectiveness of the scanners and automatic explosive detection systems to justify their use, the newspaper said.
