(CNN) - Security officials will apparently turn their attention to cell phones at airport security checkpoints overseas.

The TSA said officers may ask U.S.-bound passengers to power on cell phones to prove they are not explosives.

It comes on the heels of new concerns that al Qaeda might be developing bombs that could go undetected by security.

Additional enhanced measures have not yet been released.
