Emirates halts flights to Guinea over Ebola fears

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Dubai-based airline Emirates says it is halting flights to the West African nation of Guinea because of concerns about the spread of the Ebola virus there. The Mideast's largest carrier said Sunday that flights to the Guinean capital of Conakry were suspended beginning Saturday until further notice. Guinea, along with neighboring Liberia and Sierra Leone, is struggling to contain an outbreak of the disease that has sickened more than 1,300 people and killed more than 700 since March. Emirates' rapid growth has turned its Dubai base into one of the world's busiest air hubs, funneling travelers around the globe. The airline says it will continue flying to the West African nation of Senegal, which borders Guinea.
