The US is banning electronic devices such as laptops and tablets from cabin baggage on flights from eight Middle Eastern and North African countries.
Axar.az reports that, a US government source told that the measure would affect nine airlines operating out of 10 airports.
US media reported the order was sparked by intelligence gathered overseas. It will reportedly include all large electronic devices such as laptops, tablets cameras, DVD players and electronic games. But mobile phones and smartphones will still be allowed in carry-on luggage.
