The TSA has temporarily banned carry-on liquids on flights between the United States and Russia.

This ban also includes gels, aerosols and powders.

This is a response to information reported Wednesday that terrorists might conceal explosive materials in toothpaste and cosmetic tubes.

However, these items will be allowed in checked bags.

Passengers will also be allowed to board with prescription medications.
