Not quite book burning, but still absolutely ridiculous. Somebody flying from the UK to Germany had a copy of Murder in Samarkand by Craig Murray, the former ambassador to Uzbekistan, confiscated at the airport. So, what, people can't take any book about current events onto an aeroplane, or is it just books that criticise the government?

I haven't yet read it, although I might well get a copy when I get my student loan..
