Airlines halt flights into Israel

22 July 2014 Last updated at 21:55 BST

US and European airlines have suspended flights into Israel's Ben Gurion airport after a rocket landed nearby.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ordered three US carriers that fly to Israel - Delta, United and US Airways - to halt flights for 24 hours.

The move comes amid heightened scrutiny over flights near conflict zones.
