(JTA) — An Israeli cellist had the strings of his instrument confiscated at the airport in Warsaw, after employees determined they were “too dangerous” to take on board with him.

The strings on Amit Peled’s instrument had to be removed and he had to surrender his extra set of strings early on Monday morning at Warsaw Chopin airport, he told the Classic FM digital radio station by email.

Peled was leaving the country after appearing with the Warsaw Philharmonic.
