BAGHDAD (AP) – Kuwait suspended flights to Iraq for a week starting yesterday citing security fears after a rocket attack targetted Baghdad international airport. Iraqi authorities, meanwhile, announced an attacker had been apprehended.
Kuwait Airways, the country’s main carrier, said in a statement on Saturday that flights to Iraq were temporarily suspended based on instructions from the Kuwaiti Civil Aviation Authority due to “current conditions”.
Six rockets struck the Baghdad airport last week damaging two commercial planes belonging to Iraqi Airways, the main national airline.
