US Suspends Flights from Kyrgyzstan Base

Washington, Apr 11 (DPA): The US military has suspended flights through an air force base in Kyrgyzstan following deadly fighting in the central Asian nation, a spokesman confirmed Saturday.

Flights to transport troops and weapons to Afghanistan will now go through another base rather than the Manas air force base in Kyrgyzstan, said Major John Redfield, a spokesman for US Central Command in Florida.

The decision was made late Friday and any move to resume flights would be made by US military personnel in the region based on developments in the country, Redfield said.

The move has not disrupted supplies into Afghanistan, he said.
