File picture dated November 9, 2009 shows an Iraqi police man holding a ADE651 bomb detector device as he walks along side a stopped vehicle at a checkpoint in central Baghdad. The bomb detection device newly banned from export in Britain and labelled useless by US forces was still being used at checkpoints in Baghdad in January 2010 to a mixture of confidence and disbelief. The device, known as "the magic wand," uses a series of interchangeable credit card size paper cards said to be able to detect explosives such as C4 and TNT, as well as weapons.
