  • Kerry tells Netanyahu flight ban solely for safety 

    Secretary of State John Kerry told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday that a US ban on flights to Israel was solely due to safety concerns.

    Kerry, in Cairo to broker a ceasefire in the Gaza conflict, told Netanyahu by telephone that US authorities would review the order within a day, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

    The notice "was issued to protect American citizens and American carriers,"  Psaki said, adding "The only consideration in issuing the notice was the safety and security of our citizens."  [AFP]
