Britain is preparing to ban laptops and electronic devices on UK-bound flights from various Middle-Eastern countries, sources told The Telegraph.

The move follows a similar ban by the the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday stating that extremists are attempting "innovative methods" to bring down jets amid concerns that bombs will be hidden in laptops.

The action by the U.S. will affect flights by nine airlines from eight countries in the Middle East including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, and Egypt.
