'Computer outage' causes delays at several US airports

Travellers have been delayed at several US airports due to an computer issue affecting the country's customs agency.

In a tweet, the US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) said it was experiencing a "temporary outage" with processing systems.

It added that the CBP would be using "alternative procedures" until the unexplained problem was resolved.

The scale is unclear, but pictures on social media show long queues at airports in at least six states.
