FRANKFURT, Germany: Germany's Lufthansa and unit Austrian Airlines have halted flights to Tripoli due to the situation on the ground in Libya, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

"We have taken the decision given the developments in Tripoli and the tense situation in the region," the spokeswoman said.

The airline, which flew three times a week to Tripoli, had restarted flights to the Libyan capital in February 2012 after rebels in 2011 ousted former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
