China bars charging and use of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on flights

BEIJING (Reuters) - The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) said that it will outlaw the use and charging of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones aboard flights from Wednesday.

    The CAAC also said that it will not allow the phones to be placed in checked-in baggage, or sent as air freight, according to a statement posted on its website.

    Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd (005930.KS) is recalling the phones in several countries due to faulty batteries prone to catching fire.
