US and EU reject expanding laptop ban to Europe
US and EU officials have reportedly agreed not to impose a ban on laptops and tablets in cabin baggage on flights from Europe.

The officials, however, have agreed to consider other security measures during the four-hour talk in Brussels.

Following the eight-country ban on electronics in carry-on luggage in March, the US was mulling extending the restriction to flights from some European states.

The measure was introduced over security threats involving air travel.
