U.S. to ban some airline passengers from carrying larger electronicsBy David Shepardson and Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Passengers on some U.S.-bound foreign airline flights will have to check electronic devices larger than a cell phone once U.S. authorities formalize a new ban in response to an unspecified terrorism threat, U.S. officials told Reuters on Monday. The new rule is expected to be announced Tuesday 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. A source said the rule would cover around eight to 10 foreign airlines.
