Russia bans EgyptAir flights from Nov. 14, airport official says

MOSCOW Russia has banned incoming flights by Egypt's state-owned airline, an official of Moscow's Domodedovo airport said on Friday, two weeks after a Russian jet crash in Sinai that Islamist militants claimed to have caused.

The aviation agency Rosaviatsia declined to comment when contacted by Reuters and Egypt's civil aviation minister Hossam Kamal said Russian authorities had not officially informed Cairo of the decision.
