Iraq has extended by three months a ban on international flights to the autonomous Kurdish region, a senior official at Irbil airport in the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan said Monday. The federal government in Baghdad first imposed the air blockade in September after Iraqi Kurdistan voted overwhelmingly for independence in a nonbinding referendum rejected as illegal by Baghdad.It was extended in December for two months and was to run until Feb. 28 but the authorities decided to renew it for three months, the official said.
