US and EU officials have decided against expanding the ban on tablets and laptops in cabin baggage to US-bound flights from Europe.

However, after a four-hour meeting in Brussels to discuss the threats to aviation security, officials said other measures were still being considered.

US officials had previously said they were looking into extending to Europe a ban on electronics on flights from eight mostly Muslim countries. The measure was introduced over fears a bomb could be concealed in a device.
