As part of its effort to beef up security and counter possible terrorist activities, the governmeht of the United States will henceforth not allow passengers flying into the country on airlines from certain countries mostly in North Africa and the Middle East carry any electronic device larger than a smartphone.

According to official reports, the following airports are affected by the ban which had no end date at present:

• Queen Alia International, Amman, Jordan

• Kuwait International Airport

• Mohammed V International, Casablanca, Morocco

• Hamad International, Doha, Qatar

Just recovering from the recent terrorist attack in London, Britain has also joined the U.S. in issuing the ban on electronic devices on flight cabins, passengers intending to travel with devices larger than their smartphone will have to check it in like a regular luggage and won't be in their possession till they alight.

Terrorist attacks from electronic devices on board have not been very rampant. However, in February 2016, a Daallo Airlines' flight 159 headed for Djibouti from Mogadishu – the Somalian capital was damaged by an exploding laptop, thankfully only the bomber was lost – sucked out of the plane below cruising altitude. Al-Shabab, an Islamic terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda had claimed responsibility for the near-miss attack.

[b]Is the ban on passenger carrying devices with them a protective one or rather unnecessary?, let's hear your view.

Its a protective measure. what else can a country do to protect its citizens if not something like this? Terrorists are ready do anything just to carry out their devilish act. Islam breeds terrorists and I don't know why. - Lilian Nnedinso

It is not an outright ban; the report states that you can still take them but they have to be in the checked luggage and not on carry-on luggage. - yayahdrs8@gmail.com
