Yemenia is suspending all flights to the Comoros in the aftermath of Tuesday's crash of an Airbus A310 near the islands' of capital Moroni in which 153 died, the airline said on Saturday.

"In light of serious incidents in recent days and major risks that some passengers posed to airport staff, our company and passengers, Yemenia has decided to no longer serve Moroni for an indefinite period from July 3 until the situation eases," it said in a statement.

Yemenia's lawyer in France, Laurent-Franck Lienard, told AFP that only flights to Moroni are affected, and that the airline would continue to fly to other destinations as normal.
