Egyptair suspends flights to Baghdad for 3 days

EGYPTAIR, Egypt’s flag carrier, said on Tuesday it will suspend its flights to the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, for three days starting from Wednesday because of the unstable security situation in Iraq.
The suspension, which will continue until Friday, was taken “for the safety of our passengers and planes and until the security situation stabilizes in the city,” the company said in a statement.
The following announcement follows a Friday US drone strike in Baghdad that killed top Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani.
As speculation swirls about how Tehran might respond to the strike, stock markets in the Middle East have gone down and oil prices have also gone high.
