A secret U.S. government list of suspected terrorists has more than doubled in the past year.
Government figures provided to The Associate Press showed that the so-called no-fly list has skyrocketed from 10,000 suspected terrorists to around 21,000.
The U.S. bans all names on the no-fly list from flying to or within the country. Only about 500 of those names are said to be Americans.
After the failed bombing of Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas day in 2009, the government dramatically escalated the number of names being added to the list, according to AP.
