PARIS, Sept 5, 2006 (AFP) - France has lifted the tighter controls on flights to Britain imposed after British authorities said they had foiled an alleged terrorist attack last month, a French government official said Tuesday.

Passengers will now be allowed to carry liquids and gels on board planes bound for Britain, though these remain banned on flights to the United States and Israel, according to the official, who declined to be named.

Travellers to Britain would no longer be systematically frisked, though all of their bags would still be manually searched, the official said.
