Folding umbrella's in NAIA [MNL]

I fly through NAIA all the time. But apparently in the last few days they have implemented some crazy new scheme whereby little folding umbrella's are no longer allowed in hand luggage. HUGE hassle (as I had not checked bag). What a crazy idea. Beaten to death by a flimsy folding umbrella.... not. Anyone any idea why?

Thanks. This makes more sense than National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, the result of my Google search.

The umbrella thing has been a thing for years (more than a decade that I can remember) in all the Philippine airports, even compact ones. Every once in a while it appears they get reminder memos and are a bit more zealous in enforcement.

Moderator's Note

Folks,

Please keep in mind that the Practical Travel Safety and Security Issues forum is informational.

Members come here in search of information and practical advice to help them travel safely and with minimum hassle; please limit your postings here to seeking and providing practical information.

If you wish to debate whether umbrellas are a security risk or speculate why they are banned, please do so in the Checkpoints and Borders Policy Debate forum.

Thank you for understanding,
