Jordan's state-owned airline has resumed scheduled flights to Iraq for the first time in a decade, Jordanian Trade and Industry Minister Wasif Azar said. He told reporters that a Royal Jordanian Airbus plane had landed in Baghdad on Tuesday. All commercial flights to and from Iraq were halted shortly after the United Nations imposed sanctions on Baghdad after its August 1990 invasion of Kuwait. The embargo began to crumble in 2000.

The Palestine Liberation Organization and Jordan, hotbeds of support for Iraq in the Persian Gulf War, broke with the majority of Arab nations Sunday to sharply condemn the U.S.-led ground offensive in Kuwait. The allied effort, however, won restrained praise in Israel. A Jordanian spokesman said the Amman government "denounces this aggression and expresses the anger and pain of its people and calls upon the international community to . . . put an end to this fighting."
