Algeria closes airspace to Moroccan aviation as dispute deepens

Algeria's supreme security council decided on Wednesday to close the country's airspace to all Moroccan civil and military aircraft, the Algerian presidency said, less than a month after it cut diplomatic relations with the Kingdom.

The decision came "in view of the continued provocations and hostile practices on the Moroccan side,” it said in a statement. 

The closure also includes any aircraft carrying a Moroccan registration number.
