The Washington Post reports most of the international airlines flying to Iraq canceled flights to Baghdad on Tuesday after bullets hit a plane as it was landing, injuring a child passenger and raising fears for the safety of travelers. Iraqi officials described the incident Monday as “minor” and urged carriers not to cancel flights, which are considered lifelines for the capital. They said the three shots that hit a Flydubai flight during its descent were fired from an area south of Baghdad International Airport — located west of the capital — and that forces had been dispatched to investigate. Many airlines swiftly suspended services, including Royal Jordanian, Lebanon’s Middle East Airlines and Turkish Airlines, as well as Flydubai and three other United Arab Emirates-based airlines: Etihad Airways, Air Arabia and Emirates. The airlines did not say when flights would resume.
