EgyptAir resumes flights to Iraq

A top EgyptAir official says the airline will resume flights to Iraq next month after a 21-year break.

Hussein Massoud, chairman of the EgyptAir holding company, aid Sunday that starting July 15, there will be seven weekly flights to Iraq — four to Baghdad and three to Irbil in Kurdistan. Flights will go to Baghdad on Saturdays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and to Irbil on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The flights return to Cairo on the same days. EgyptAir suspended flights to Iraq in 1990 before the first Gulf War.

Battle at sea over tuna

Tunisian fishermen have pulled alongside a ship of environmentalists on the Mediterranean and attacked them by throwing metal chain links at the crew.

The crew of the Steve Irwin, owned by the U.S.-based Sea Shepherd Conservation society, responded by throwing stink bombs on board the Tunisian fishing boat.

Several Tunisian boats are attempting to protect their tuna catch, in a cage floating at sea. The environmentalists want to interfere with any tuna fishing that is not legal.

— The Associated Press

A French military jet is circling overhead. The Tunisians summoned the military early Saturday by claiming the environmentalists were cutting their nets, which wasn’t the case.

The environmentalists, however, do want to cut the nets of any boat determined to be fishing illegally, to free the tuna.
