An architect of Iraqi descent has said he was forced to remove a T-shirt that bore the words "We will not be silent" before boarding a flight at New York.
Raed Jarrar said security officials warned him his clothing was offensive after he checked in for a JetBlue flight to California on 12 August.
Mr Jarrar said he was shocked such an action could be taken in the US.
US transport officials are conducting an inquiry after a complaint from the US Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
JetBlue said it was also investigating the incident but a spokeswoman said: "We're not clear exactly what happened."

That's unbelievable...will people be stopped from travelling on airplanes simply because their clothing has a foreign language on it? I wonder what complaint the passengers would have had had they been travelling on an airline like Emirates or Gulf Air...that the safety-cards are written in Arabic?
I think it would have been better if JetBlue had simply told those passengers that they could leave off the flight if they were offended by a piece of Arabic writing.
