Swedish airline stops Iraq flights

15 August 2007

Sweden has suspended its commercial flights to and from Iraq following a report that an aircraft traveling to Stockholm was targeted by attackers, a spokesman for the country’s Civil Aviation Authority says.

Eva-Mari Lofqvist, the agency’s information officer, told CNN that the move was made Friday and will be in effect “‘until further notice.'”

Last Wednesday, a Nordic Airways flight carrying around 120 passengers was headed from Sulaimaniya in the northern Iraqi Kurdish region to the Swedish capital, Stockholm, when the incident occurred.
