Laptop ban from six Middle Eastern countries set to be lifted – Telegraph.co.uk

A ban on passengers carrying laptops and iPads in hand luggage on flights to the UK from the Middle East is set to be lifted, The Daily Telegraph understands.

Travellers flying from Tunisia, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Lebanon have been banned from carrying electronic devices larger than a smartphone in cabin bags since March.

The ban was introduced in response to intelligence about terrorists developing bombs that could be hidden in laptops.
