In a major embarrassment for Apple, some model of Macbook Pro has been banned across aircraft, which are flying in India.

Days after the US regulatory body FAA banned some MacBook Pro laptops from flights due to the risk of a battery fire, India’s DGCA has said that flyers should not carry these laptops in check-in or carry-on baggage.

Banned models include 15-inch MacBook Pros from 2015 sold between September 2015 and February 2017.

The issue started when Apple issued a recall on its website in June this year.

According to Apple:

In a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units, the battery may overheat and pose a fire safety risk.

The recall does not affect any other 15-inch MacBook Pro units or other Mac notebooks

This order to ban Apple Macbook Pro on airplanes has been issued by The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), via a Tweet. This covers both domestic and international flights.

Apple has provided a tool on its website where a MacBook Pro user can find if their laptop has been affected or not. The company will replace batteries of affected Macbooks for free. Apple notes on its website:

Find an Apple Authorized Service Provider to have your battery replaced. Your MacBook Pro will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this program. Service may take 1-2 weeks.

India is among the last countries to announce the Macbook Pro ban on airplanes. The European Union Aviation Safety Agency and the American Federal Aviation Administration have already banned these specific models from flying in the airlines. Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Thai Airways already have also issued directives for the same.

Thousands of people protesting over Kyrgyzstan election result

Kyrgyzstan Protest

Thousands of people are protesting in Kyrgyzstan over allegations of vote-buying and intimidation in Sunday’s parliamentary election. The capital Bishkek saw the largest protest while rallies were also held elsewhere in the ex-Soviet republic.

Only four parties out of 16 passed the 7% threshold for entry into parliament, three of which have close ties to President Sooronbai Jeenbekov. International monitors have said the claims of vote-buying are “credible”.

None of the established opposition parties got a seat in parliament. Now all of these parties have declared that they will not recognize the results of the election. Opposition candidates are calling on the Central Electoral Commission in Kyrgyzstan to cancel the results of the vote. One candidate, Ryskeldi Mombekov, told a crowd of more than 5,000 protesters: “The president promised to oversee honest elections. He didn’t keep his word.”

Mr. Mombekov’s party, Ata Meken, had been confident of entering parliament, but in the end, it was one of the eight parties that missed the threshold. Protesters are also calling on President Jeenbekov to resign. Thomas Boserup, head of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s election observation mission, said in a briefing that although the vote had been “generally well organized”, allegations of vote-buying were a “serious concern”.

The two leading parties, which got a quarter of the vote each, were Birimdik and Mekenim Kyrgyzstan. President Jeenbekov’s younger brother, Asylbek Jeenbekov, is in Birimdik.

Mekenim Kyrgyzstan, meanwhile, is seen as being closely connected to the powerful Matraimov family. The family’s figurehead, Rayimbek Matraimov, is believed to have helped finance Mr. Jeenbekov’s successful presidential campaign in 2017.
