Report: U.S. to ban larger electronics on some flights

Authorities in the United States 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 had been under consideration since the U.S. government learned of a threat several weeks ago, the officials said, and could be announced by the Department of Homeland Security as soon as Monday night.
