Japanese authorities plan to conduct a trial of full-body scanners at Tokyo Narita airport in July.

The government will set up a panel next month to study the use of the scanners, and to consider related issues such as the invasion of privacy, says Japan's transport ministry.

Several airports in Europe have introduced the scanners following the 25 December attempted bombing of a Delta Air Lines flight from Amsterdam Schipol to Detroit.
