electronics ban on US/UK bound flights [now lifted]

US forbids any device larger than cellphone on airlines from 13 countries

US authorities have secretly required airlines from 13 nations to forbid passengers from carrying any electronic or electrical device larger than a cellphone.The new edict was distributed in an email described as “confidential” from the US transportation safety administration (TSA) on Monday....
So far only Jordan and Saudi Arabia have confirmed the new rules, however it is expected that Turkey is also on the list. No confirmation yet from TK.
