Afriqiyah Airways has decided to suspend flights and cancel all of the scheduled ones from Labrag airport in eastern Libya starting today until a further notice.

This decision came after a security guard beat an Afriqiyah Airways captain black and blue in the airport as he was preparing to take off to Tunis on Wednesday.

The reason behind the assault of the security guard lies in the fact that the plane crew did not allow one or the guard’s relatives to take aboard a huge bag with her on the plane, asking her to put it in the luggage store downside the plane.
