Bahrain halts Lebanon fights after travel warning

Bahrain halts Lebanon fights after travel warning

Bahrain's national airline has suspended flights to Lebanon after comments by Hezbollah's leader criticizing the response to a Shiite uprising in the island kingdom.
Bahrain's government has criticized recent comments by Hassan Nasrallah singling out the Sunni monarchy for bringing in troops from neighboring Gulf countries to help face down the protests.
Bahrain warned citizens Tuesday not to travel to Lebanon because they could be in danger there.
Gulf Air says flights are being suspended from Wednesday through at least Friday. It says the move is related to the "ongoing situation in the region" and a resulting drop in passenger demand. It didn't elaborate.
