Royal Jordanian resumes Baghdad flights

Royal Jordanian said it resumed flights to the Iraqi capital on Sunday after a 24-hour suspension decided for security reasons.

"Royal Jordanian resumed flights on Sunday to Baghdad," Jordan's carrier, which also flies from Amman to Arbil in northern Iraq and to the southern port city of Basra, said in a statement.

Violence has peaked in Iraq since jihadist fighters seized areas north and west of Baghdad in an assault against government forces launched in June.
