U.S. to ban some airline passengers from carrying larger electronics

By David Shepardson and Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. authorities are planning to ban passengers traveling on certain U.S.-bound foreign airline flights from carrying into the cabin larger electronic devices in response to an unspecified terrorism threat, U.S. officials told Reuters on Monday. The new rule is expected to be announced as early as Monday by the Department of Homeland Security, the officials said, adding that it had been under consideration since the U.S. government learned of a threat several weeks ago. The officials did not name the other countries.
