Iran blocks Russia fighter overflight access

Russia may not be able to showcase its Su-27 fighter to potential buyers at the Bahrain air show after Iranian authorities barred it from entering the nation's air space, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.


An Su-27 bound for Bahrain was denied passage over Iran as it neared the border even though its flight plan had been cleared in advance by Iran's Foreign Ministry, the Russian ministry said. (Reuters)
