Tightened airport security is something most of us have grown accustomed to when travelling abroad.
But imagine one girl's surprise upon arriving in Israel and being told that Israeli security officers had put three bullets in her MacBook.
According to her blog, 'Lilysussman' arrived in Israel where she was questioned and searched for about two hours.
'They had pressed every sock and scarf with a security device, ripped open soap and had me strip extra layers,' she wrote.
The intrepid traveller was then told to wait. 'Since they had asked for friends' and families' phone numbers I assumed they might be calling to verify my answers to questions or confirm I really had extended family in Tel Aviv,' she wrote.
According to the blog, an announcement was then made in Hebrew, Arabic and English, which Lilysussman understood as saying: 'Do not to be alarmed by gunshots because the Israeli security needs to blow up suspicious passenger luggage.'
After a few moments Lilysussman said a man came outside and introduced himself as the manager on duty, saying, 'I’m sorry but we had to blow up your laptop.'
The laptop had in fact been shot three times, but the hard drive was miraculously undamaged.
According to Lilysussman's blog, the officers have agreed to replace the laptop.
