Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Sunday he's considering a ban on laptops in the passenger cabins of all international flights to and from the US.

This would be a huge expansion of DHS restrictions that took effect in March, barring electronics larger than a phone inside the cabin on flights to the US and the UK from airports in several countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

Kelly was asked on "Fox News Sunday" if he was going to ban laptops from all international flights into and out of the US. "I might," he answered. Kelly added that there's a real threat to aviation, saying terrorists are "obsessed" with the idea of "knocking down an airplane in flight, particularly if it's a US carrier, particularly if it's full of mostly US folks, people. It's real."
