FAA bans commercial airlines from flying over Iraq as U.S. bombing missions begin

Federal aviation authorities are prohibiting U.S. airlines and other commercial carriers from flying over Iraq as U.S. bombing missions begin.

The FAA announced the ban Friday, citing the 'potentially hazardous situation' created by fighting between militants and Iraqi security forces and their allies as U.S. military planes begin strategic airstrikes against the Islamic State.

The ban applies to all U.S.-registered planes except those operated by foreign carriers and to FAA-licensed pilots and comes only one day after President Obama authorized the attacks.
