Haniyeh faces stringent security check

This is a fairly detailed, matter of fact report. The chief Hamasnik, sporting a freshly shaved head (and still, curse it, resembling Mr. Clooney) is returning to Gaza after a spiritual facelift in Mecca:

Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh arrived at the Egypt-Gaza border Thursday, after his pilgrimage to Mecca, and will undergo unprecedented security measures to ensure that he is not carrying money or weapons into the Gaza Strip.
The linked article goes into some details, no problem here. It is only the headline of that article that causes me a small discomfort: "Haniyeh reaches Egypt-Gaza border, faces stringent security check". I understand the English used in it, but to be precise - it is not the face that should concern the inspectors. It is rather, I shall use the American euphemism - tails.

And make it thorough...
