A customs agent at Lod Airport, unaccustomed to nude passengers, received an uncustomary response from a woman from Cyprus whom he asked to open her suitcase for inspection. Angered by the request, she tore off her clothes, announced she was going to have a heart attack, and fainted. A hastily summoned doctor pronounced her quite well, if not quite dressed.
