But certain medical devices will be permitted in the cabin.

The new security measure came to light when Jordanian Airlines disclosed it. The airline has deleted a tweet it posted, replacing it with a notice that more information is coming.

The ban was indefinite, said the official."

The countries involved are majority Muslim but aren't those targeted by President Trump's travel restrictions. The president's revised executive order singled…
