LONDON, May 27 (Reuters) - British Airways said on Saturday there was no evidence that a global breakdown of its IT systems had been caused by a cyber attack.

The airline canceled all its flights from London's two main airports until Saturday evening after a global computer system outage caused massive delays and left planes stuck on runways.
