Emirates flights suspended after women security measures

Tunis: Tunisia said Sunday it has suspended Emirates Airlines flights after a public outcry over security measures in the United Arab Emirates targeting women from the North African country.

The transport ministry said it had "decided to suspend" Emirates flights to Tunis "until the airline is able to find the appropriate solution to operate its flights in accordance with international law and agreements".

A number of Tunisian women had said their travel to the Gulf state on UAE airlines had been delayed and some had to undergo additional examination of their visas.

The UAE said "security information" had prompted the delays.
