Middle East airlines mock electronics ban on UK, US-bound flights

A ban on large electronic items such as laptops and tablets on some international flights arriving in the US and UK from the Middle East and North Africa has drawn anger from some passengers.
But in a bid to make light of the situation and get publicity, airlines affected are using humour and satire as a response on social media.

Members of the UK’s Muslim community have condemned a car-and knife attack which killed at least five people, including the suspect.
Many also feared collective punishment as some equate Islam with “terrorism”.
“We’re in a very difficult position,” said Mohammed Kozbar, chairman of Finsbury Park mosque. “We hope that there’s no reaction from far-right extremists who may use this incident to spread fear and hate and racism among our society.”
