FAA restricts flights over Iraq story image

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The FAA is issuing new flight restrictions over Iraq because of what it calls hazardous situations created by an armed conflict.

The order issued Thursday night follows the downing two weeks ago of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

It was shot down by a missile as it flew over rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine.

The FAA says the situation in Iraq is just as volatile. It's restricting planes from flying at or below 30,000 feet.
