A Brit was labeled a potential terrorist and denied overseas travel. He's 3 months old.


A three-month old was interviewed as a potential terror suspect in the U.K. because his grandfather accidentally identified him as a terrorist.

Harvey Kenyon-Cairns was set to fly to Orlando for his first overseas vacation, but his grandfather Paul Kenyon reportedly made a critical error on the visa waiver form, The Guardian reports.

For the question "Do you seek to engage in or have you ever engaged in terrorist activities, espionage, sabotage, or genocide?" Paul checked "yes."

I couldn't believe that they couldn't see it was a genuine mistake.

Naturally, little Harvey had no terrorist history or ambitions. But it was enough to prevent authorities from letting him travel overseas. Harvey also had to show up in the U.S. Embassy in London for an interview.

He was eventually cleared to travel, but his parents had to pay $3,800 in new flights, as they were delayed beyond the rest of the family's flights.

He's obviously never engaged in genocide or espionage, but he has sabotaged quite a few nappies in his time.

Paul poked fun at the incident, but said the embassy didn't see the humor. 

"I was hoping the U.S. embassy would realize that it was just a simple error," Paul said.
