Laptop ban: minister refuses to rule out extending it worldwide –

Asked whether there should eventually be a total ban on taking laptops in hand luggage, Ms Rudd said: “It’s difficult to see how far this will go, whether we may at some stage arrive at that place.”

She added: “At the moment the Government has made the decision on where to have that ban in place based on the intelligence we have received.”

The ban currently prevents passengers having laptops, iPads, Kindles and other gadgets larger than a mobile phone in their hand luggage if they are travelling from Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia.
