Germany bans flights from Yemen

Yemen's Government expressed its ''regret and surprise'' following a move by German authorities to ban all flights from Yemen (DPA, 02-Nov-2010). German authorities imposed a ban on incoming parcels and other air cargo from Yemen over the weekend, widening its ban on 01-Nov-2010 to flights from Yemen entering German airspace. Yemen stated the ban was a "hasty and exaggerated reaction" to the security situation.
