Lufthansa halts Libya flights due to security worries

Source: Reuters

Germany's Lufthansa and its subsidiary Austrian Airlines have halted flights to Tripoli due to insecurity in Libya, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

Lufthansa, which flew three times a week to Tripoli, resumed flights to the Libyan capital in February 2012 after rebels ousted former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Austrian, bought by Lufthansa in 2009, flew to Tripoli twice a week.

"We have taken the decision given the developments in Tripoli and the tense situation in the region," the Lufthansa spokeswoman said.

It was the second time this year that flights to a Libyan city have been canceled due to security concerns.

1. What does Lufthansa know that we don't know?

I haven't heard about problems in Tripoli lately.

2. If Germany has some sort of intelligence about security concerns, I hope

they're sharing it.
