Iran suspends all flights to Istanbul

Action taken after airport attack

Iran said it had suspended all flights to Istanbul's main international airport on Wednesday after it was attacked by militants.

"Due to last night's explosion at Ataturk Airport ... all Iranian flights are suspended until their safety and security are guaranteed," Reza Jafarzadeh, director of the public relations at Iran's Civil Aviation Organization, was quoted as saying by Fars news agency.

He added that the flights might be resumed in the afternoon.
