    US and UK implement ban on laptops coming to the US from eight Middle Eastern and African nations. The US and UK regulations affect different points of departure. The new restrictions on direct flights to the UK include flights from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia. But some of the 10 airports covered by the US ban — Abu Dhabi and Dubai (UAE), Doha (Qatar), Kuwait City and Casablanca (Morocco) — are not affected by the UK restrictions.

    CNN reports details of the threat pertaining to laptops on airlines, including that US intelligence believes ISIS and organizations have developed ways to plant explosives in electronic devices that FBI testing shows can evade some airport security screening methods. The FBI determined the laptop bombs would be far more difficult for airport screeners to detect in tests late last year. One official called the intelligence "hair-raising." At the same time, they also said there was no single, overwhelming piece of intelligence that led to the ban, rather it was an accumulation of intercepted material and "human intelligence."
