AMMAN (Reuters) - Jordan's state airline said on Sunday it had suspended four weekly flights to the Iraqi city of Najaf due to the "security situation at it's airport, a company statement said.

Royal Jordanian said Najaf is the ninth destination in the region - from Mosul in Iraq to Aden and Sanaa in Yemen - to which it has suspended flights due to turmoil in recent years.

Najaf is among the cities in southern Iraq that have witnessed days of protests over poor services and against alleged official corruption.
