Syrian airline cancels flight to Aleppo

Egyptian airport officials say Syria's national airline has cancelled a flight to Aleppo because of fighting near the city's airport.


The officials said the Saturday flight was supposed to stop in Aleppo before continuing to Damascus but flew straight to Damascus "because of the deteriorated security situation" near the Aleppo airport. It was the first time a flight to Aleppo had been canceled, they said. (AP)
