Air Malta flight to Benghazi turns back, then tries again
An Air Malta flight to Benghazi returned to Malta today after the Benghazi airport was closed.
However the flight took off again shortly after arriving in Malta, with the airport having reopened again.
The airport has been closed on several occasions over the past few days because of fighting in the city and security concerns. Today's closure, however, appears to have been caused by an accident involving a helicopter.
