Washington D.C. (WENY)- The U.S. government is temporarily delaying the start of a rule that would permit passengers to carry small knives on commercial flights.
The Transportation Security Administration said it will now consider additional input from a group that includes aviation-related interests and law enforcement experts before putting the new regulation into effect.
Airline passengers would have been cleared to carry knives with small blades beginning on Thursday.
