CAIRO (Reuters) - British authorities have lifted a ban on carry-on electronic devices on planes arriving from Cairo airport, Egypt's Ministry of Civil Aviation said on Friday.

The United States and Britain in March imposed restrictions banning electronic devices from being carried on planes coming from certain airports in Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

Authorities lifted the ban "after confirming that security procedures on Egypt's flights meet the requirements of the British Transportation Security Administration," the ministry said in a statement.
