USA to ban some passengers from bringing certain items into airline cabins

Some airlines in the Middle East said they are moving to comply with orders barring passengers from bringing large electronic devices in carry-on luggage on US -bound flights. Royal Jordanian said the electronics ban affects its flights to New York, Chicago, Detroit and Montreal.

The US government last week announced a modified version of its ban on the movement of citizens from Muslim countries, with Iraq being removed from a list of seven countries that were included in an earlier ban.

The U.S. government officially notified the airlines at 3 a.m. ET Tuesday.

Distributed in a confidential email, the new requirement would prevent passengers from 13 unnamed countries from carrying electronic devices larger than a cellphone on US-bound flights.

These devices include laptops, tablets, DVD players, electronic game consoles and cameras.

He added there could be concern about inadequate passenger screening or even conspiracies involving insiders, airport or airline employees, in some countries.

"We have reason to be concerned about attempts by terrorist groups to circumvent aviation security and terrorist groups continue to target aviation interests", the Department of Homeland Security said in a release. They will be allowed to carry on cell phones and medical devices.

Vets said they would perform an autopsy on Omsin as a case study, which would benefit the treatment of turtles in the future. In the weeks after the surgery, the turtle (pictured above recovering from her surgery) was put on a liquid diet.


A US Congressional aide speaking on the condition of anonymity said US Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly briefed lawmakers on aviation security issues that prompted the electronics ban over the weekend.

But Royal Jordanian Airlines tweeted on Monday that it would ban passengers from carrying on most electronics to and from its North American flights, CNN first reported.

State Department officials referred all inquires to the Transportation Security Administration.

The new rule is the latest travel restriction Donald Trump's administration has handed the airline industry.

Fliers can still travel with these items, but they must be packed in their checked baggage.

The airports are: Queen Alia International Airport (AMM), Cairo International Airport (CAI), Ataturk International Airport (IST), King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED), King Khalid International Airport (RUH), Kuwait International Airport (KWI), Mohammed V International Airport (CMN), Hamad International Airport (DOH), Dubai International Airport (DXB), and Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH).
