Tripoli, 10 June 2014:
Obari Airport temporarily suspended operations this morning after a passenger became unruly with airport employees.
The suspension . . .[restrict]happened “because a passenger and the airport employees misunderstood one another, which caused a slight problem,” Obari airport security official Adem Seeda told Libya Herald.
The Obari airport is the only functioning civil airport in the south of Libya. Sebha’s airport closed following the eruption of communal clashes in the town in January.
“It is minor problem. Yhings will soon be sorted out, today or in the next few days,” said Seeda, leaving open the possibility that access by air to the south might be totally cut off for a few days.
Obari, which has a majority Tuareg community, is the second largest town in the south after Sebha. [/restrict]
