US intelligence and Department of Homeland Security officials said they have broadened the criteria used to identify foreigners from certain countries for further scrutiny and decide if they should be added to lists of those who can be barred from entry.

Under the new guidelines, if foreigners’ names are on a terror-related list and they fit certain age and nationality criteria, their names could be added to the master watch list, which would prompt further scrutiny.
