The Trump administration plans to prohibit travelers on some airlines flying out of several Middle Eastern and North African countries from carrying large electronic devices into the cabins of U.S.-bound flights in response to an unspecified terrorist threat.

Passengers will be able to carry the affected devices, including tablets, laptops, and cameras, in checked luggage.
